The Best Sources for Updates and News on the Coronavirus
The past weeks have brought quite a change of pace – to markets, to countries, to daily life. The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, along with COVID-19 (the disease it causes), has spread worldwide. We are in a new normal.
Here at RCS, our mission remains unchanged: to bring you the most clear, relevant, and evidence-based science news and opinion. Of late, that means our daily updates have been dominated by the coronavirus. In our attempts to seek out the best information on the pandemic, we've noticed a variety of websites, organizations, and writers that have consistently done outstanding work. We'd like to highlight a few of them now, while acknowledging that there are many more dedicated sources also striving diligently to inform the public and arrest the viral threat. You'll find their reports regularly featured at RCS as the outbreak plays out over the ensuing weeks and months.
