“Mayo Clinic and the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) partnered to launch the Viral Infection and Respiratory Illness Universal Study (VIRUS), a global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) registry which would shed light on varying treatment patterns around the world.”

“The registry has gathered information on more than 5000 patients from 81 clinical sites since its initial launch on March 31. The healthcare sites in the registry span 8 countries thus far. The VIRUS dashboard contains data on ICU discharge details, types of medical support received including mechanical ventilation, and demographic information.”

“The registry collates anonymized clinical data using an extensive Mayo Clinic database. Research sites can access their own data at all times and submit research proposals to use the VIRUS dataset for research.”

See why Mayo Clinic is looking to expand the number of research sites participating in this study.
