Resources relating to COVID-19

This list of resources was compiled by Melissa Harden, from the University of York, with input from other members of the NIHR Policy Research Programme Reviews Facility. (Back to our online map of research relating to COVID-19) Please note, we have compiled this list as part of our surveillance work on COVID-19. We do not claim the list is exhaustive, or that the content of every resource is accurate. The list simply aims to help those looking for research on COVID-19, and users should assess for themselves the relevance and reliability of each source.

We will update it once a week or thereabouts. Last update: 19 June 2020.
