<aside> 💡 Project Summary: This is a work-in-progress repository of the current research on Coronavirus and the disease it causes (Covid-19), displayed in a digestible format.

Problem: Even though more than 24,000 research papers have been published on Coronavirus, not everyone reads them because either research is too complicated and dense, or it's too hard to derive conclusions.

Solution: Thus, this project. The idea is to help capture, summarize, and display accurate information on Coronavirus in a manner that facilitates reading.

Pick of the coronavirus papers: Absent antibodies suggest mystery immune response

This research paper from Stanford dated Apr 11, 2020 has the main conclusion that:

The population prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in Santa Clara County implies that the infection is much more widespread than indicated by the number of confirmed cases. Population prevalence estimates can now be used to calibrate epidemic and mortality projections.
