ISARIC COVID-19 Clinical Data Report issued: 15 December 2021

ISARIC (International Severe Acute Respiratory and emerging Infections Consortium) partnerships and outbreak preparedness initiatives enabled the rapid launch of standardised clinical data collection on COVID-19 in Jan 2020. Extensive global uptake of this resource has resulted in a large, standardised collection of comprehensive clinical data from hundreds of sites across dozens of countries. Data are analysed regularly and reported publicly to inform patient care and public health response. This report, our 16th report, is a part of a series. Data have been entered for 706,747 individuals from 1669 partner institutions and networks across 64 countries.

Divergent SARS CoV-2 Omicron-specific T- and B-cell responses in COVID-19 vaccine recipients (GeurtsvanKessel et al. 2021)
