Abstract

The COVADIS project (RIA2020EF-3012) aims to validate an antigen-based point of care test in suspected West African COVID-19 patients; to develop a validated serological platform for COVID-19 serodiagnostic and outbreak surveillance, to characterise the viral load and antibody dynamics in a cohort of confirmed COVID-19 patients and to characterise at the household level the seroepidemiology of COVID-19 infections.
