Our fourth update on this topic, the last one being in April! I have yet to see any other attempt at highlighting the information/search needs of health professionals, so if you know of any please let me know.
Below are the top 15 search terms used alongside searches for Covid-19 (or synonyms). This is a crude list with no attempt to reconcile synonymous entries.
- PPE or masks
- chloroquine OR hydrochloroquine
- vitamin d
So, what’s changed?
Firstly, diagnosis is now in top spot…
Secondly, there are increases on the topics of vaccines, vitamin d and ivermectin.
Lastly, there seems to be tailing off of searches on the topic. The graph below shows a cumulative total of searches for Covid-19 (and synonyms) – that’s the thick blue line. The dashed yellow line is a trend line based on the first months of the pandemic.
