Live Incidence of Viral Respiratory Infections
– VACCELERATE Basis for Study Planning

  • SARS-CoV-2 on the rise again
  • RSV outnumbering Influenza

COVID-19? RSV infection? Or influenza? With the cold season, the number of respiratory diseases increases again. We are currently conducting a survey to determine the frequency and distribution of respiratory diseases.

For this purpose, volunteers from our Volunteer Registry are contacted and receive a test kit from us.

The test can detect 5 different viruses and is used if one or more of the following symptoms are present for at least 24 hours: Cough, sore throat, runny nose, difficulty breathing, redness of the eyes, loss of smell or taste and also aching limbs with or without fever.

The test result is reported to the VACCELERATE team by email and evaluated.
