This site was set up by the World Federation of Science Journalists to assist our global community of science journalists to easily access the best scientific information about the COVID-19 crisis, and share best practice about how to cover this type of subject. The site is entirely curated by science journalists and, in this era of fake news, is intended to show only the most trustworthy information.
We put up this site very quickly (it has been eight days since the idea was originally mooted) because we saw an urgent need and wanted to help. This means the site is far from perfect as it stands. Rest assured that we will be actively working to improve it.
