Our top priority is to protect the health and well-being of our communities and to arm healthcare providers with the latest information available as the coronavirus (covid-19) situation evolves.
To support health professionals working around the clock to meet those most in need, we are making our covid-19 resources available - at no charge - for clinicians, nurses and medical researchers, in response to new developments, evidence and guidance.
As new research on covid-19 is published, our editorial team takes that evidence and rapidly synthesises it into topics that go through a journal-like peer-review process with medical expert authors around the world.
The evidence is then coupled with what clinicians need right now: specific, actionable recommendations to care for patients at every stage of the disease and their recovery.
This work has helped doctors and nurses mobilised from unrelated specialties to support the covid-19 front lines and clinicians who have come back into clinical practice.

Commonly asked questions related to covid-19
With literature and evidence changing rapidly around covid-19, UpToDate is leveraging its rigorous editorial process to quickly answer the most commonly asked questions from front-line clinicians around the world. Our “questions and answers” sections aims to provide evidence-based answers to help clinicians make the most appropriate decisions for patients.
Questions include: How is SARS-CoV-2 transmitted? What are the treatment options for patients with covid-19? Does protective immunity develop after SARS-CoV-2 infection? What special considerations are there for pregnant and breastfeeding women?
Clinicians can use the feedback button in any covid-19 topic to submit questions directly to our editorial team. We curate the answers based on the latest evidence with updates presented in new “questions and answers” topics.
Patient education: understanding covid-19 and how to stay safe
UpToDate and Emmi patient resources educate the public on ways to stay healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. Topics include “the basics”, “coronavirus and children”, and “coronavirus in pregnancy”. The video reflects the most current recommendations on masks and face coverings, and includes additional common and less common symptoms for patients to watch for.
