Subject: Ref q- Recommendations for covid-19 literature summaries/digests?

Dear all,

One of my infectious disease docs wrote and explained that they are drowning in all the new covid-19 literature. They asked if I knew of any regularly published digests that give short summaries of the recently published covid-19 literature.

I’ve located the UCSF digests, the synopses from Public Health Ontario, and am aware of LitCovid. Does anyone follow or create any literature summaries to help clinicians stay current?

Thanks so much!

Best regards,
