We seek to support humanitarian response to COVID-19. We offer summaries and analysis as the pandemic evolves (Digests + Developments); credible, intelligible, and usable sources of information (Resources), and a framework for understanding COVID-19 as a global public health emergency (Topics).

Topics

This is a brief description of this section, explaining why we chose these areas, why are they important, and how do they respond to the most urgent questions.

(5) Lauer et al: Along with serial interval, important in understanding transmission dynamics, particularly where pre- and asymptomatic transmission occurs.
