COVID-19: The Science View
We are in an unprecedented situation with coronavirus and COVID-19. Most countries are affected by it and many including India are under lockdown. Alongside the scientific research and best practices defined by scientists there is a lot of rumors and unsubstantiated claims floating around.

We, the ISF team, feels that it is our responsibility to bring awareness and information regarding this pandemic to the Indian population in most accessible fashion. The scientific community has come together with ISF to help us with this. We are developing useful resources regarding awareness about COVID-19 with the help of this community. We will share resources created by us and the ones independently curated by some reputed scientists and groups on this page.
