COVID-19 science updates—top 5 new papers daily by email

Welcome to the Update!

I’m Dr. Carl Juneau and my PhD is in public health (epidemiology). Since the pandemic hit, I wrote a systematic review of cost-effective interventions to suppress COVID-19 and contributed to a series of long-form articles with Tomas Pueyo that have been viewed about 60 million times.

I check 68 sources for new science on COVID-19 every day (including Nature, Science, JAMA, The Lancet, and more). I link to the 5 best papers here as a public service and provide a summary in 2-3 sentences. I focus on public health and epidemic control, not on clinical outcomes or pharmacology.

You can read the daily update on the main page or get it by email. It’s free.
