COVID19 Misinformation

The lab has been receiving lots of questions about the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 the disease it causes, COVID19. Here we answer those questions and dispel misinformation, pointing you to expert resources. 

Our research focuses on the evolution of severe infections. We have been pooling our combined research and work experience in sepsis, drug development, drug policy, health risk management policy, evolutionary genomics and past pandemics to answer the questions that come our way and believe that posting that information here will be useful for others. That said, the best place to get current information about SARS-CoV-2 and COVID19 is the World Health Organization (WHO) and your national public health department (e.g. Canada: PHAC, USA: CDC)
