aims to curate the latest news, data, resources, tips and innovations from around the world to help navigate the ongoing global crisis.
ANA says that it hopes that, in collating and curating this information and making it accessible to everyone, the platform can spread "a little kindness, compassion, as well as the truth".
The platform will share:
- articles on the treatment
- information on the management of the disease, and
- myths around Coronavirus.
"There are many unknowns about this disease and many mis-truths, half-truths and false information that is being circulated," says Lance Witten, chief content officer at ANA Syndication.
"This can have the effect of creating panic and fear. In providing this free access to credible knowledge, we aim to empower people and assist the public in not feeling so scared or alone during these current unsettling times," adds Witten.
