Steps to set up your queries

To set up your queries click on:

Start tracking > Add keywords and phrases > Next > Advanced settings*

*using Advanced settings with Boolean operators helps you restrict the context so that you don’t receive every news regarding the virus, but only the ones relevant to you. Keep in mind that you need to use quotation marks with phrases (two words or more). You can also restrict sources for the tool to monitor (e. g. monitor only websites).
