Continue to Stay Informed on COVID-19 

It’s the start of a new year, but we are still managing through a global pandemic that has changed the way we work, learn, connect with our family and friends and go about our everyday lives. Since COVID-19 was discovered, the information regarding how to protect ourselves from the virus, protect our community, and test for the virus has evolved. New research, studies, and information is released constantly to provide the public with the most up-to-date facts available. Important resources and updated COVID-19 information is available on the CDC website here, plus you can find critical information including studies, guidelines, vaccine information available, and more from upstanding organizations right here on Issuu. 

Of course, nine months (and counting) into the pandemic, we also recognize that COVID-19 has not only caused a global health crisis, but we are in the midst of a global recession and social upheaval. COVID-19 has created a ripple effect that is far-reaching and uncovered vast inequality amongst the groups most affected by the virus, caused economic devastation to small businesses, and more. Publications on Issuu also report and tell the critical stories of this side of the COVID-19 pandemic as well.

COVID-19 x Black Lives Matter Special Issuu

The COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter issue is a 2020 collaboration between four undergraduate-run publications: the Yale Global Health Review, the Yale Journal of Medicine and Law, the Yale Literary Review, and the Yale Scientific Magazine. Together, they sent out a call to voices all over the world affected in various ways by the syndemic of racism and COVID-19 and received a striking response. This issue features work from those living in Singapore to Brazil to Jordan to South Korea to the Philippines to Yale’s own community of New Haven, Connecticut, USA. We hear the personal story of a family stripped of loved ones by a faceless disease, and we encounter the heartbreaking poetry of those bearing the emotional burden of justice deferred. We learn about the nuances of non-routine vaccine development, and we see the beautiful resilience of healthcare workers striving to heal in the face of the unimaginable. These publications have created an important piece of history and storytelling in the midst of this historic period of time.
