Basic science research and innovation will be vital in containing and mitigating the effects of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. To have quick access to the most relevant health evidence on how to address this global health crisis, The Cochrane collaboration has put together several Special Collections containing relevant Cochrane Reviews:
- A Special Collection with reviews that are directly relevant to the prevention of infection.
- A Special Collection with all evidence relevant to the management of people hospitalized with severe acute respiratory infections.
- A Special Collection on effective options to quit smoking during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other special collections and initiatives are under way.
In addition, Cochrane is speeding up the normal process for important Cochrane systematic reviews.
Cochrane First Aid is continuously monitoring the rapid review list, ready and willing to provide support in developing first aid-related reviews. We will keep you updated on our efforts and the reviews published on first aid-related topics.
