Tracking Asymptomatic COVID-19 Through Indianapolis Communities (TACTIC)
This study is being conducted by the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Riley Hospital for Children to better understand the prevalence and spread of the novel coronavirus. Right now, it is unclear to physicians and scientists how many people may unknowingly have the virus, compared to persons who do not have the virus at all. By testing more people, we hope to learn more about asymptomatic prevalence of this virus and its spread.
The data generated from this study will help to define the best way to contain COVID-19 infection now and in the future.
