New UK trial to study long-term impact of Covid-19 on health

Jun 04, 2020 18:20 IST

While most Covid-19 research is focussing on a cure or symptoms, a path-breaking UK trial will study the infection's long-term impact. Amid growing evidence that coronavirus doesn't just harm the lungs but also the heart, liver and kidney, the two-year-long study is recruiting 500 recovered patients who will be monitored for a year to monitor changes in their health over time. The COVERSCAN trial, by Perspectum, a spin-out firm of the University of Oxford, will compare results of control samples taken from thousands of volunteers long before the pandemic.
