A study that uses patient data to track the progress of the Covid-19 pandemic in near real time across Scotland is set to launch. The project – which has been awarded £500,000 of funding from the Medical Research Council – will also be able to track the effectiveness of any new treatments or vaccines. The study is led by researchers at the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with University of Strathclyde, Health Protection Scotland (part of Public Health Scotland), West of Scotland Specialist Virology Centre and University of Aberdeen and endorsed by the Scottish Government.
