It is essential to learn as much as possible during a disease outbreak into order to best diagnose, treat and prevent new diseases and learn for future outbreaks. Here we provide access to resources that can be taken and adapted for use in settings where the cases occur. Please check back here as we collate latest resources on this in real time.Go to page
This is a ‘pop-up’ area on The Global Health Network in response to requests for a knowledge hub and access to guidance on the new Novel Coronavirus outbreak; COVID-19.
The Global Health Network is an open source platform that provides trusted knowledge, guidance, tools and resources to support the generation of more and better health research data. During emerging outbreaks it is vital to learn as much as possible to generate evidence on best practice for prevention, diagnosis and treatment and to facilitate effective preparedness and response for future outbreaks.
This pop-up space for 2019 Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (formerly 2019-nCoV) supports evidence generation by pooling protocols, tools, guidance, templates, and research standards generated by researchers and networks working on the response to this outbreak. Findings from previous outbreaks, largely obtained during MERS and SARS, are also available. This all aims to make research faster and easier and to enable standardised, quality data to be collected and prepared for sharing.
Latest updates will be provided on transmission as well as recommendations for healthcare professionals on transmission, disease management, and care.
