Studying SARS-CoV‑2 collectively

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.
