Using MoBa to understand the COVID-19 pandemic - project description

Published Updated

This project will follow the spread of COVID-19 disease in Norway over the next few years, and investigate why someone becomes infected and possibly seriously ill.


Summary

This project will follow the spread of COVID-19 disease in Norway over the next few years, and investigate why someone becomes infected and possibly seriously ill.

Abstract:

We will use an existing health study, the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Study (MoBa). This study follows 95,000 mothers, 75,000 fathers and 114,000 children in families. The study started in 1999 and the recruitment ended in 2008. Biological material and questionnaire data are collected. In this study, we send out short questionnaires using messages to mobile phones. In addition, MoBa data will be linked to health registries. Among other things, these data will answer why some people become seriously ill with COVID-19 infection.

Participants in the MoBa study can unsubscribe at any time and / or have all data that has been registered deleted. Read more about this here (in Norwegian only)
