PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — There are many places to learn about COVID-19 these days, but unfortunately, as with many things you see on the internet, there are inaccurate sites and even scam sites. 

The go-to site for medical professionals is coronavirus.gov, which is where you can find CDC information. But another treasure that is worth checking out is a Johns Hopkins University site.  

This is the site that has the latest numbers of cases and deaths throughout the world by the minute.

It also has the latest information from academia, which may be different from the government.
