Information/ COVID-related items

(1) Lin, Y., Liu, C. & Chiu, Y. (2020). Google searches for the keywords of “wash hands” predict the speed of national spread of COVID-19 outbreak among 21 countries. Brain, Behavior, and Immunity. (Online early access).

(2) Carlyle, R. (2020, April 8). Now is the time: Information literacy and sharing information about COVID-19.

(3) Paakkari, L & Okan, O. (2020, April 14) COVID-19: health literacy is an underestimated problem. The Lancet (Online). "the COVID-19 infodemic has highlighted that poor health literacy among a population is an underestimated public health problem globally" (spotted in a tweet by Ruth Carlyle)

(4) Information cards in Russian and English. "UNESCO IITE and UNAIDS Regional Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia in partnership with Odnoklassniki social media network have released a series of information cards to provide teachers, parents and students with practical tips for living and studying in the time of COVID-19. 64 cards summarize key expert recommendations on nine questions about COVID-19, its influence on our everyday lives – work, studying, relationships with closest ones, physical and mental health – and ways to adapt to this new reality." (One of them illustrates this post - they are freelu usable).
