EPPI Centre Evidence for Policy & Practice: Resources relating to Covid-19

This list of resources was compiled during the beginning of the pandemic, and has been updated as new resources have emerged. It aims to help those looking for research on COVID-19, and users should assess for themselves the relevance and reliability of each source.

See the COVID-19: A living systematic map of the evidence, which is partitioned into broad domains: treatment evaluation; transmission/risk/prevalence; diagnosis; health impacts; vaccine development; genetics/biology; case reports (patients); case study-organisation; social/economic/indirect impacts. Read the Introduction to get started. Select a Topic then List records to view the citations.
