Coronavirus / Covid-19 Information: Medical Information
Up-to-date information on U.S. coronavirus conditions and response.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Allen Institute for AI has partnered with leading research groups to prepare and distribute the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19), a free resource of over 29,000 scholarly articles, including over 13,000 with full text, about COVID-19 and the coronavirus family of viruses for use by the global research community.
It's crucial to stay informed with high quality information. While there are great resources available misinformation abounds. Reading and sharing reliable and accurate resources related to COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") is important for everyone's health and safety. Here are some tools to get started.
When you are suspicious that a source doesn't seem plausible search for other coverage. Do a quick Google search on the topic. If no one else is reporting on the topic that's a red flag. Sometimes there is some truth to the story but the facts have been manipulated in some way. Find a more factual source to read and share.
Check the date on the article. Information that perhaps was true even a few hours ago might be outdated now. Make sure you search for the most current information on a topic.
Click through. When legitimate content is shared, the person posting it often adds a comment. This can frame or distort the facts in a misleading way. Always evaluate the original content before drawing conclusions.
Incorporating these easy basic methods into your everyday social media routine can help combat the spread of misinformation.
