Disclaimer: The UNM Global Health COVID-19 Briefing is provided as a public service. Sources include not only peer-reviewed literature, but also preliminary research manuscripts that have not been peer reviewed along with lay news media reports. The peer-review process often results in manuscript improvement, with corrections made for errors and unsubstantiated conclusions being corrected. Furthermore, many headlines and summaries in the briefing are written by student volunteers and others who may lack subject matter expertise in this rapidly evolving field. As such, the headlines and summaries should not be regarded as conclusive. Instead, readers are encouraged to use the briefing to identify areas of interest and then use the embedded links to read and critically evaluate the primary sources.
