Happy New Year. The new year represents a fresh start for many of us and an opportunity to reflect back on the previous year. Taking a look at the top articles for December 2020, we are still seeing a very high interest in COVID-19 articles and we have two new entries this month.
The entry at number one will look familiar as McAloon et al. has maintained the top spot with their meta analysis on the incubation period for COVID-19. A new entry from November, Houben et al. has moved up in the charts to number two, with the Netherlands Perinatal Registry cohort profile. This cohort includes detailed data on 542 900 pregnancies in the Netherlands from 1999 to 2017.
Our first new entry at number six is Gilbert et al. with a vignette study on the accuracy of popular symptom assessment apps. Comparing the apps to General practitioners (GPs), Gilbert et al. found that some of the apps provided a high level of accuracy when assessing symptoms. But, GPs outperformed all of the apps.
The second new entry is a cross-sectional study from Dost et al. on the perceptions of medical students towards online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. The students found that online learning allowed them greater flexibility in their studies but barriers included poor internet connections and family distractions.
