Respiratory virus outbreaks and pandemics, such as SARS, MERS, and the new SARS-COV2 virus, have major impacts worldwide. Researchers must act quickly to learn about the exposures and immunity in the general population. This can be done by studying people's blood serum to find those with antibodies to the virus. This knowledge can help in current and future pandemics.
In this study, researchers want to find people who have anti-SARS-COV2 antibodies but no known exposure or illness.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.
