Description of the research topic:

World Health Organization (WHO) announced the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019) outbreak pandemic in the morning 12th of March, 2020. As often seen regarding other epidemics, most cases can be asymptomatic or develop only mild symptoms and remain undiagnosed. Therefore, it is hard to estimate the true incidence and the disease outcomes precisely. Nevertheless, it must be noted that we lack evidence-based targeted pharmacological therapy for prevention and treatment alike. The aims of this scientific project are to understand i) the onset, ii) epidemiology, iii) diagnosis, iv) clinical course, v) treatment, vi) therapy and vii) complications of SARS-CoV-2 infection, in addition to investigate the biomarkers and genetic background of this disease.
