The study started this June, with an online questionnaire to the participants, which asked about lifestyle, work, physical activity, mental health and symptoms related to the COVID-19 pandemic during the periods before and during the lockdown.

“The questionnaire is then complemented with a voluntary blood sample, with full informed consent. The sample is used to define the serological status regarding immunity to the virus, which can be compared with previous data to study susceptibility to COVID-19,” explains Manolis Kogevinas, researcher at ISGlobal and coordinator of the project.
