The aim of this Special Collection from Cochrane Library is to ensure immediate access to systematic reviews most directly relevant to the management of people hospitalized with severe acute respiratory infections. It includes reviews that are relevant to the WHO interim guidance, and reviews identified as relevant by Cochrane Acute and Emergency Care, informed by Cochrane groups in affected regions. Note: While the reviews in this Special Collection assess interventions that are referenced in the WHO interim guidance, the direct applicability of the evidence may be limited by the low proportion of people with viral infection enrolled in the primary studies. Many reviews in the collection have associated Cochrane Clinical Answers.
This Special Collection from the Cochrane Library has been created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is regularly updated. It aims to ensure immediate access to systematic reviews most directly relevant to the prevention of infection. It includes reviews that are relevant to the WHO interim guidance, as well as other potentially relevant reviews from three Cochrane Networks: Cochrane Public Health and Health Systems; Cochrane Musculoskeletal, Oral, Skin and Sensory; and Cochrane Acute and Emergency Care, and also draws on the knowledge of Cochrane groups in affected regions. Many reviews in this collection have associated Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCAs), with links provided.
