A list of resources on everything from the status of the pandemic to vaccines to understand and complement official communication and information-sharing efforts.

More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic and many people are still asking and wondering where to go for credible information on what’s happening.

We should have done this long ago … so here’s a list of very useful resources when trying to find answers about what’s happening in the world of COVID-19.

Global

On the general state of the global responses to the pandemic, your first-stop and go-to point should be the World Health Organisation (WHO).

For general information and updates:

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic

For vaccine information and updates:

COVID-19 vaccines

Equally informative and credible is the US’s Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The information is primarily US-focused, but a lot is useful and applicable to a global audience as well. 

For general information and updates:

COVID-19

For vaccine information and updates:

Different COVID-19 Vaccines

Then there’s the Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 online resource centre, which has a wealth of information. While much of the information is also US-focused, the information is useful and applicable globally.

For general information and updates:

Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center: Home

For vaccine information and updates:

VACCINES

They also have a really informative and expert blog series about vaccines:

COVID-19 VACCINE MATTERS

Africa

For Africa-specific information about the COVID-19 pandemic, the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) is a good point-of-call.

For general information and updates:

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Then there’s the WHO’s Regional Office for Africa, which also has a valuable online information portal.

For general information and updates:

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For vaccine information and updates:

COVID-19 Vaccines

These resources have a lot of information that can help answer many questions and concerns around COVID-19 and the vaccine responses that have been unfolding.
