Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) contributed to the first two years of the scientific community’s response to COVID-19 with many publications, some of which reached a very large audience.
The Laboratory’s most-read COVID-19 research stories
The Laboratory’s research stories reach millions of readers via our website, social platforms, and the multiplier effect of many media outlets. During the first two years of the pandemic, CSHL scientists continued publishing their research. In some cases, they went beyond their usual line of study and worked on COVID-19. The four most-read COVID-related CSHL research stories across our website, social media platforms, and news outlets were:
- New evidence for how blood clots may form in very ill COVID-19 patients (Published 6/29/2020, with more than 11,000 views on our platforms and seen by over 16 million people via 116 news outlets.)
- Clinicians and scientists apply symptom tracking to COVID-19 outpatient care using famotidine (Published 6/4/2020, with more than 10,000 views on our platforms and seen by over 50 million people via 160 news outlets.)
- Smoking increases SARS-CoV-2 receptors in the lung (Published 5/18/2020, with more than 10,000 views on our platforms and seen by approximately 13.5 million people via 141 news outlets.)
