The scientific literature on COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and these articles were selected for review based on their relevance to decision making around COVID-19 response efforts. Included in these Literature Reports are some manuscripts that have been made available online as pre-prints but have not yet undergone peer review. Please be aware of this when reviewing articles included in the Lit Reps.
A meta-analysis of 10 studies (9,890 subjects) found no significant association between using ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers and the risk of severe or lethal COVID-19. More
A meta-analysis and bias assessment of serological tests for COVID-19 reported a low pooled sensitivity of lateral flow immunoassays of 66% and a pooled specificity of 97%, which could limit the application of this approach as a point-of-care method. More
