JOIN THE COCHRANE CROWD AND CONTRIBUTE TO COVID-19 KNOWLEDGE BASE


What is Cochrane?


Cochrane has now developed a crowdsourcing application available to anyone to report on new evidence.

What is TaskExchange?

TaskExchange connects people working in health evidence with people who have the time and skills to help.

The Covid-19 pandemic provides an opportunity. While the impact is devastating and lethal to some people, at the same time it is a tragic battleground to be examined by clinicians and scientists.  Although in the coronavirus family, this new mutation is a novel and fresh organism, which has some very different pathophysiology from ordinary and historical seasonal corona influenza.

The current protocols for prevention, diagnosis, containment, and beyond are based upon standard CDC guidelines, which have been used previously for  SARS, MERS, EBOLA, and AIDS (HIV).  We are especially fortunate that one of the members of the task force is Deborah Birx, M.D. who has a life-long interest and experience with the aforementioned epidemics.
