Read the latest HealthWatch newsletter:  Newsletter 116, Summer 2021

HealthWatch volunteers have been helping communicate best evidence about COVID-19.

It is more important than ever that the public have access to health information based on good quality evidence. In March 2020 the Oxford Centre for Evidence Based Medicine created the Oxford COVID-19 Evidence Service to conduct evidence reviews on important questions about the science of the pandemic. HealthWatch has been working with them to produce lay summaries of their reviews. These are being updated regularly.

Go to our new COVID-19 page to see the latest list, which covers treatments, mortality rates, handwashing, social distancing, and more.
