Review: COVID-19: Real-time dissemination of scientific information to fight a public health emergency of international concern

This editorial highlights the effectiveness of rapidly sharing scientific information to provide real-time guidance to clinicians and epidemiologists.

Given the rapidly changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential that scientific information be shared just as rapidly. By sharing information in real-time, clinicians can better manage patients, epidemiologists may better contain the outbreak, modelers will better understand future developments and possible intervention effectiveness, and publics may be less panicked. Using academic journals for rapid dissemination of information provides frontline workers and decision-makers with transparent and reliable information to manage the pandemic.
