MuSPAD - the nationwide antibody study of the HZI on the spreading of SARS-CoV-2 infections
How many people in Germany have already been infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and how is the pandemic developing? These and other questions are being investigated by the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research with the MuSPAD project (Multilocal and Serial cross-sectional Prevalence Study on Antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in Germany). In different regional samples, blood is taken from selected volunteers and tested for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
In the video, HZI scientists explain the study design, as well as the procedure & objectives of the project.
