Read in: English
A scientific and factual website with an authentic source of information called `CovidGyan’ has been created to stay updated on COVID19 pandemic with a multi-lingual and communicative content when there is misinformation doing round through different social media platforms.
This initiative is the brainchild of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), and Tata Memorial Centre (TMC).
https://covid-gyan.in/ serves as a hub to bring together a collection of resources in response to the COVID19 outbreak. These resources are generated by public supported research institutions in India and associated programs. The content presented here relies on the best available scientific understanding of the disease and its transmission.
The primary objective of this website is to create public awareness and bring in a holistic approach to the understanding of this disease. It would also be used as a ‘go-to’ repository of information regarding COVID-19.
CovidGyan has been designed to bust the myths and rumors. Users can seek ‘right information’ through talks from eminent scientists in audio/podcast formats, infographics, posters, videos, FAQs and even links to scientific papers.
