COVID-19 Resources

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in coordination with NIH and Operation Warp Speed, has launched a central web portal called Combat COVID. The portal is a one-stop resource to help members of the public and doctors find information about different stages of COVID-19 illness, NIH-supported COVID-19 prevention and treatment clinical trials, and locations to donate plasma.  

You can also learn more about COVID-19 via the COVID-19 Real-Time Learning Network from the CDC, which collects and shares the latest information on fighting COVID-19, such as clinical guidance, institutional protocols, clinical trials data, as well as practice tools and resources from a variety of medical subspecialties around the world, including the ATS.
