Abstract

The TraCE project (RIA2020EF-2981) aims to understand and mitigate household transmission of SARs-CoV2 infection in a low-income, high-density South African community setting. Data to be collected over 8 months will be used to determine the Ro for SARS-CoV-2 infection, the rate of symptomatic disease, and the impact of an infection mitigation intervention administered by community healthcare workers.
