Abstract

Collaboration for development of personalised risk models for COVID-19 infection and severity, by coordinating a small international data science group to prospectively gather COVID-19 healthcare data (updated weekly now) from UK Biobank (and Quebec, CA) over the next year for linkage to genetics, clinical history and environment/lifestyle data for personalisation of the risk of disease and severity. The results will help develop a refined risk profile for COVID-19 infection while exploring the genetic factors associated with infection risk and virulence.
