Research is needed to better understand how and why the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus infection causes atypical pneumonia called COVID-19 in some people.
Research is also essential to:
- Develop treatments and vaccines
- Identify people at risk and take appropriate measures to protect them
- Help the government take social measures to control the spread of the infection
- Predict and better prepare for possible future pandemics
