MedHelp is committed to hosting evidence-based information about COVID-19. Toward this end, we require that all posts that include statements of scientific or medical fact be substantiated by a link to a credible source.
Statements of fact include:
- Statistics related to transmission, infection, and death rates;
- Information about testing, prevention, treatments or cures;
- Any other claim presented as factual, for which evidence for/against is readily available.
Expressions of opinion (e.g., "I am more afraid of being infected on a bus than in an airplane) do not require substantiation.
Failure to provide a credible source, when asked, may result in removal of your post(s), warning(s) against your account, and/or temporary or permanent deactivation of your account.
If you have questions about this policy, please feel free to message a member of the moderation team, and we'll be happy to help. We care about the safety and well-being of all of our members, and factual information is key to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
