Coronavirus Today is an international publisher of research-based, fact-checked information regarding how the SARS-CoV-2 beta coronavirus caused the COVID-19 pandemic.

We believe nobody is safe unless everyone is protected!

Mission Statement

We publish information people can trust to make informed vaccination decisions in conjunction with their healthcare provider.

Overview

Coronavirus Today publishes information related to coronaviruses such as MERS, SARS-1, and SARS-CoV-2.

Coronavirus Today is an owned affiliate of the Precision Vax, LLC information network that was founded in 2016, and owned and led by Karen McClorey Hackett.

Editorial Independence

Coronavirus Today publishes information based on independent research from universities, government agencies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, the CDC, the WHO, and world-class journals. 

These organizations do not influence our content.

Furthermore, our news team is independent of commercial or political interests. Therefore, we do not accept gifts, including paid travel, to avoid conflicts of interest or appearance.

Moreover, we do not publish paid content.

Medical Advisory Team

The Medical Advisory Team works closely with our editorial team to ensure Coronavirus Today published content is accurate, actionable, and understandable. We seek diverse voices in our management and reporting staff. Here is our advisory board. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with Dr. Robert Carlson at sitka@outlook.com.

Fact-Checking

Our news organization commits its best efforts to publish accurate information. We stand by the information we publish; if it's incorrect, we will change it as quickly as possible. In addition, we take many steps to ensure accuracy, such as:

  • We investigate claims with skepticism, question assumptions, and challenge conventional wisdom.
  • We confirm information with subject-matter experts and seek to corroborate what sources tell us by talking with other informed people or consulting documents.
  • We verify content, such as technical terms, stats, etc., against source documents or clarify who provides the information. For example, we may share relevant components of a story with a primary source or an outside expert to verify them.

Diversity

Inclusiveness is at the heart of thinking and acting as journalists. The complex issues we face as a society require respect for different viewpoints. Race, class, generation, gender, and geography affect perspective. Reflecting these differences in our reporting leads to better, more nuanced stories and a better-informed community.

Corrections Policy

If our digital audiences cannot trust us to get the small things right, how can they trust us on the big stuff?

We welcome feedback from our readers regarding the information that we publish. Our news organization is committed to telling readers when an error has been made, the magnitude of the error, and the correct information, as quickly as possible. This commitment to transparency applies to minor mistakes as well as large ones.

Please send any suggested changes to our President, Karen@precisionVaccinations.com
