COVID-19 News on NewsBank


The latest news about COVID-19 is easy to find on NewsBank, a membership database available remotely to all Jenkins members. An announcement banner located on the homepage of the database links users to a search for COVID-19 news from sources around the United States and the World. Results include newspapers, magazines, newswires, videos, and more.

The search results can be filtered to narrow the source locations. Click "More Options" for advanced location filtering.

From the advanced options you can select or search for a continent, country, state or city.

Philadelphia sources include The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia Daily News, Billy Penn (WHYY Affiliate), Philadelphia Magazine, and more.
