Prospective Observational Swiss Cohort Study to Investigate Long-term Pulmonary and Extrapulmonary Effects of COVID-19.


COVID-19 is a coronavirus induced viral pneumonia leading to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Previous coronavirus infections (SARS and MERS) led to pulmonary fibrosis in up to 30%. Prospective evaluation of lung abnormalities and pulmonary fibrosis after COVID-19 infection is crucial as novel treatments against lung fibrosis of different etiologies are available. No data on pulmonary longterm effects in COVID-19 survivors are currently available. The nation-wide Swiss COVID-19 lung group establishes a meticulously characterized prospective cohort study on pulmonary long-term sequela of patients living in Switzerland.
