The relationships between lifestyle, well-being and various diseases are the research topic of Dr. Lechner's team, which is a Clinical Cooperation Group of the DZD partner Helmholtz Zentrum München. The LIFE & COVID study investigates which factors are responsible for the severity of the course of a Covid-19 infection. In addition, it aims to identify possible longer-term consequences of a Covid-19 infection, about which little is known so far.
In this online study LIFE & COVID, online questionnaires are used to ask people who have recovered from COVID-19 for information about aspects of their Covid-19 disease as well as lifestyle factors, concomitant diseases and medication intake at the time of diagnosis. Following the beginning of the study, a maximum of four questionnaires are sent via online to the individual study participants during a total period of 12 months. Each questionnaire takes about 10 to 20 minutes to answer.
Participation is open to interested persons who have recovered from a Covid-19 disease for which they have received a verified Covid-19 diagnosis within the last 12 months. They should be at least 18 years old and live in Germany.
