Coronavirus Resources

Knowing the facts about coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is key to protecting yourself and your loved ones. Sadly, there’s a lot of incorrect information out there. Misinformation during a health crisis leaves people unprotected and vulnerable to the disease, and spreads fear and stigmatization.

Be sure to get your information from trustworthy sources that rely on scientific evidence, like the United Nations and the World Health Organization.
