COVID-TREAT has been brought to life in order to make available to clinical staff handling COVID-19, information on the literature related to treatment methods and options. Many publishers round the world have agreed to grant access to their databases of health-related articles during the duration of the pandemic. However, this noble gesture overlooks one important detail: clinical staff have seldom time to go and search for publications.
Therefore, COVID-TREAT has been conceived as a "one stop shop" which allows clinical staff, researchers, government authorities and University studdents (e.g. medicine, biomedicine, pharmacy) to Access previously selected "peer-reviewed" literature on treatment for COVID-TREAT, from some of the world´s leading journals, in an uncomplicated way.
COVID-TREAT collects, selects, amasses and make available recent and state-of-the-art literature on COVID-19 treatment from various sources, reporting in particular on emerging methods and proven modalities of treatment accepted by the scientific community, in a way which may allow access via a normal computer, notebook or even by smart phone, so clinical staff round the world can access it. The information is compiled as simple PDF files, hence being readily available. This approach is especially useful to clinical staff in developing countries, whose access to the internet and to bandwidth is limited.
It should be noted that no recommendations on therapies are given, and these cannot be interpreted as suggestions for handling patients. COVID-TREAT simple provides a gateway to the specialist literature.
We wish success to all those people and institutions which are at the front in the fight against COVID-19, which threatens millions of People round the world.
