January 7, 2022

Thorofare, NJ – Healio announced today that January 7th marks the 2-year anniversary of COVID-19-related news coverage on its site. With 4,168 articles and counting, Healio continues to be a robust source for COVID-19 news and information for physicians and other health care providers.

“The Healio news team has been committed to coverage of what would become the COVID-19 pandemic since before day 1,” said Joan-Marie Stiglich, ELS, Chief Content Officer of Healio.

In the January 7, 2020 article, Healio reported on the “emergence of an unidentified strain of pneumonia that has infected dozens of people since the middle of December.” In February 2020, they launched the award-winning COVID-19 Resource Center, which publishes news reports centered around the novel virus. And in April 2020, they launched “Unmasking COVID-19,” a podcast providing multi-specialty discussion about the impact of the virus.

Healio has long been an information provider focused on the medical specialist, allowing the Healio news team to draw on their specialty expertise throughout their coverage of the global pandemic.

“The news team was uniquely prepared to cover the pandemic as they have vast experience in sustained, ongoing coverage (the opioid crisis, Zika and Ebola) of public health news, and breaking news in medicine,” Stiglich said. “Coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a mix of both.”

With its rapid spread among populations and nuanced proliferations, COVID-19 continues to pose unique challenges and have far-reaching impact on health care providers worldwide. From monitoring disease variants to vaccine administration, Healio remains committed to providing health care providers with the information they need to stay informed in these challenging times.
