Are you looking for coronavirus information resources? Answers to your questions?

We’ve discussed the importance of finding the right online resources in previous posts – those from reputable sources. With COVID-19, there is a lot of information online, some of it that is not reliable.

General Coronavirus Information

Of course there is the CDC’s website. This is the index page. Follow the buttons to find general information about the virus.

If you haven’t looked at John Hopkins website, you should. They have their map but also they have Public Health On-call. People ask questions and they are answered by experts at John Hopkins in podcast form.

Medications and susceptibility

People are worried about their medications making them more susceptible to the virus. For people taking anti-hypertensives, the AHA and the American College of Cardiology issued a statement basically stating to continue their medications.

For people taking immunosuppressive medications for IBD, Crohn’s disease and other conditions see this from the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.

Cancer patients can look at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center for more information.

Recent interview

March 18th an interview with Anthony Fauci, MD, Director of the NIH National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease occurred.

We will continue to try and update this list as we find helpful information. Please add any coronavirus information suggestions in the comments section. Stay safe!
