Note:  For information on the Coronavirus itself, please visit the CDC Web site.

In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) is gathering the latest international multilingual scientific findings and knowledge on COVID-19.  The majority of citations referenced are published journal articles.  The global literature cited in the WHO COVID-19 database is updated daily (Monday through Friday) from searches of bibliographic databases, hand searching, and the addition of other expert-referred scientific articles.  Particular emphasis is placed on identifying literature from around the world.  Multiple search strategies that are under continual revision are used to obtain this global perspective.  New research is added regularly.
