Journal Articles

Journal Articles

In response to the Covid-19 epidemic many publishers have exceptionally made all their scientific content on the virus freely available to help share knowledge to combat it. The following list consists of articles drawn mainly from the medical literature that discuss the social and economic impacts of the virus. There are few articles here dealing with therapy and diagnostics, as it assumed that the medical community is fully aware of the latest findings through sites such as Pubmed. Here we include articles that reflect the progress of the epidemic in different parts of the world and for that reason the date of publication on the Internet has been included, if known. For the duration of the crisis it is expected that these resources will be freely available.

The following resources were used to compile this list:
