Abstract

The Profile-Cov project (RIA2020EF-2905) aims to evaluate the profile of the immune response of the Ethiopian population and will examine its relationship with the noted low CD4+ T-cell count and underlying immune activation status among patients with COVID-19 and will compare the results with data collected in Europe.
