Abstract

This award is being made to allow the Unit to undertake rigorous community COVID-19 surveillance in high-risk and general populations in Uganda, in order to understand the wider impacts of pandemic spread and associated mitigation strategies. This will answer critical questions on transmission dynamics, burden and distribution of infection including identifying vulnerable groups.
