Check Out NIH’s New COVID-19 Research Website

Posted

We are pleased to announce that the new NIH COVID-19 website launched last week. The site provides a central location for trusted, up-to-date, accurate information about NIH research and our strategic role in COVID-19 research. The site complements information made available on our COVID-19: Information for NIH Applicants and Recipients of NIH Funding webpage.

The new site includes information about key programs such as the Accelerating COVID-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines public-private partnership and the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics initiative to develop state-of-the-science diagnostic tests for COVID-19. Users are also able to search information on funded research by state, institution, Congressional district, and more.

To support ongoing efforts to direct the public to critical information on COVID-19, the website also includes links to information on:

  • Vaccines, treatments, and testing
  • Clinical trials and how to participate
  • How to donate plasma

  1. What happened to the flu this year? When I look at the WHO’s website flu tracker called FluNet, they are basically reporting nearly 0 cases of influenza since April, 2020. Did everyone start classifying any respiratory problem as covid19?

    1. Thank you for your inquiry. Please note that, as a biomedical research agency, we will be unable to provide the information you are seeking. However, you may wish to contact the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC is the federal agency with responsibility for tracking and controlling infectious diseases. Contact information for CDC may be found at https://wwwn.cdc.gov/dcs/. You may also wish to review information about CDC’s influenza surveillance program at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/fluactivitysurv.htm and decreased influenza activity during the COVID-19 pandemic in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report at https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6937a6.htm.
