Dear Cochrane friends and colleagues,
I am writing with my weekly update on Cochrane’s work this week, July 6-10. Full information about our work can be found on Cochrane.org, and our coronavirus research and news page continues to be updated.
- We are currently beginning to review the COVID-19 work we have undertaken thus far; learn more about how we will review our organizational response. We would like to learn from the experiences of contributors across Cochrane, and we will be in touch soon with details about how to get involved.
- On July 7, we published the COVID-19 Diagnostic Test Accuracy review Signs and symptoms to determine if a patient presenting in primary care or hospital outpatient settings has COVID‐19 disease. The Plain Language summary of this review has already been translated into 6 languages other than English.
- On July 10, we published an update for the review Convalescent plasma or hyperimmune immunoglobulin for people with COVID‐19. Originally published May 15, this is the first update to this Living review. Read the full review.
- Students have created a Visual Abstract for COVID-19 Diagnostic Test Accuracy review Antibody tests for identification of current and past infection with SARS-CoV-2 published 25 June; view the Visual Abstract or read the full review.
- Join the Conversation: Watch the recording of the July session of the monthly webinar I host.
The global collaboration that these efforts and all the work done thus far to respond to COVID-19 is a testament to our wonderful Cochrane Community. Thank you for your continued work.
Stay well. With best wishes,
Editor in Chief, Cochrane Library
