COVI-Preg, a structured data collection tool available to any facility assessing pregnant patients for SARS-CoV-2 infection28 Apr, 2020
Emerging infectious diseases require a global approach and adaptive tools to allow for rapid and comprehensive characterisation of the risks associated with the disease, particularly in pregnancy. That is why some scientists have adapted a Zika Virus international web registry, to acquire large cohorts and allow accurate risk estimations, and therefore a global perspective for scientists and clinicians involved in the care of pregnant patients during the pandemic.
The Coronavirus Tech Handbook is a crowdsourced library of tools and resources relating to COVID-19 response. It is a rapidly evolving resource with thousands of expert contributors.
