Iím convinced @etech0 has a job that somehow incorporates spreadsheets, Workflowy, and any GIF or meme that has graced the internet.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Would love it if this thread was revived as well, and not just the political ones.

Under all the politics, science would seem to be advancing our understanding of a new disease at an unprecedented rate. But we're not seeing twlk about it or the nuances that the science will find, rather just increasing political outrage and otherwise.

Is there any outlet that is focused on the latest hard science related to this pandemic?

Where have I heard this before?
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

I think the challenge is that even in a perfect world, public policy necessarily cannot dovetail with science, because it takes, among other factors, economic and mental health into calculation.

Holy cow!

TwiV is actually quite illuminating, but I unfortunately don't have detailed notes.

NYTimes.  Often in the Tuesday Science section.  Clearly written summaries of recent research, often with the writers getting opposing views from other scientists. 
https://www.nytimes.com/section/science

This week in virology podcast.  Started by a (retired) research virologist, so they're really interested in the basic science.  I find it frustrating, because I can read much faster than they speak, but I speed it up, and it's not too bad.

Scientific American has a coronavirus section
https://www.scientificamerican.com/tag/The+Coronavirus+Outbreak/
and you can sign up for Robin Wright's newsletter on smart, useful, science stuff about covid-19
https://robinlloyd.substack.com/

STATnews is good, though perhaps more health-y than science-y
https://www.statnews.com/tag/coronavirus/

EurekAlert aggregates PR releases from research institutions, usually a one-page summary with links to published articles.  They have a couple of covid sections:
