There is an enormous amount of information floating around about COVID and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID. Unfortunately, much of the information is filtered through a lens of bias or reported by non-scientists. The definitive source of information is the peer-reviewed scientific literature that is being published. These papers are thoroughly reviewed by experts in the field to make sure the science is solid and the research was conducted appropriately. I can tell you from experience, the peer-review process is not easy. Your manuscripts are read with a critical eye to make sure you are not making unfounded conclusions, that you followed accepted protocols, and overall your findings are valid. There is a very good repository called LitCovid, part of the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the organization that manages PubMed. As of November 10, 2020, there are over 68,000 peer-reviewed, published articles in the database. The articles are searchable by subject, journal name, and other criteria. If you want to know what has really been discovered and the directions that the research is headed, LitCovid is the source.
