In the article titled “Publishing in the Time of Pandemic: Editorial Policy of a Dermatology Journal During COVID-19”, by S Panda, published on pages 337-340, Issue 4, Volume 86 of Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology,[1] the last sentence and the linked citation need to be corrected.

Currently it reads:

Only time can tell whichever course serves history more positively, as a veteran editor has summed up the situation quite succinctly last month: “...much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.”21

Ref: 21. Horton R. Offline: What is medicine's 5 sigma? Lancet 2020; 385: 1380.

The corrected text will be:

Only time can tell whichever course serves history more positively, as a veteran editor summed up the situation quite succinctly five years back: “...much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.”21

Ref: 21. Horton R. Offline: What is medicine's 5 sigma? Lancet 2015; 385: 1380.

Besides, on page no.339 ,line numbers 12 and 30, the name of the virus has been mentioned as SARS-COV2, which should better have been labelled as SARS-CoV-2.
