A weekly report to answer clinically relevant questions by summarizing the most recent evidence

This information is intended for healthcare providers

This website complements the weekly report and houses the full list of references used to answer the clinical questions addressed in the newsletter.

The information presented is produced by a collaboration of fellows, residents, medical students, graduate students, faculty lead, and librarians from the University of Manitoba and the Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases community.

The information presented reflects the data that is currently available to us. In the context of a pandemic where rapid dissemination of information is essential, we have included information from evolving medical literature which may be awaiting peer-review.
