The new SARS CoV II 2019 is spreading rapidly. Mandated by the ESCMID Emerging Infections Task Force (EITaF) and supported by the German Infectious Disease Society we want to better understand the implications of the new virus on patients by systematically documenting patient data.
The SARS-CoV‑2 pandemic is a major challenge for medical professionals worldwide, with a daily increase of new infections.
Currently, there is a gap of knowledge regarding best possible clinical management of the infection as well as prediction and prevention of severe outcomes.
We initiated the Lean European Open Survey on SARS-CoV‑2 (LEOSS) project, a prospective European multi-center cohort study, to get more in-depth knowledge about the epidemiology and clinical course of patients infected with SARS-CoV‑2.
Our goal is to establish a quick and simple register that allows anonymous documentation of patients. This data can be used to identify independent predictors of outcome in patients with diagnosed infection by SARS-CoV‑2.
The study will allow retrospective inclusion of patients treated before initiation of the study.
The eCRF will ensure the documentation of the following items:
