This involves two population COVID-19 tracking projects in a Camden based cohort with blood sample capture. In older people, the aim is to assess the incidence, risk factors, and determinants of outcomes using gene expression, serology and co-infection data along with hospital data of those admitted. In birth cohorts, short to long term impacts on health will be assessed as well as life course determinants of resilience to major shocks.
