@bgcarlisle So this was stuff unrelated to covid, that got interrupted because of covid? I wonder how much the pandemic has set back medical research. And how much covid might have tainted/impacted results in trials that weren't terminated. Is that a thing?

@CarlCravens Yes that's right, and up until 2022-05-10 there have been 2959 clinical trials that stopped and cited Covid-19 explicitly as the reason why

@bgcarlisle covid also borked half of my my sociophonetics thesis, so I wonder what the graph for various nonmedical disciplines look..
