The study was led by scientists at the Center for Infection and Immunity (CII) at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, as part of the Center for Solutions for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, an inter-disciplinary, inter-institutional research group dedicated to understanding the biology of the disease in order to develop effective means to diagnose, treat and prevent it.
Comparison of pre- and post-Omicron disease severity among unvaccinated people without risk factors
In a recent study posted to the medRxiv* preprint server, researchers in Sweden investigated coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) severity among unvaccinated adults during the periods of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Omicron variant of concern (VOC) dominance compared to the severity of pre-Omicron VOC infections.
