What is this website for?

Risk factors and protective factors are essential parameters used to identify individuals at risk of developing a disease and understanding the prediction of disease severity. This applies especially to rapidly spreading pandemics like COVID-19. However, there is a remarkable degree of uncertainty about the disease mechanism and epidemiology of the infection and its outcomes.

Like the pandemic itself, the volume of relevant scientific publications is growing tremendously, resulting in over thirty new publications per day. Wide variation in the published results has been observed due to the differences in underlying populations, methods, and screening criteria for SARS COV-2 infection. Consequently, no global scientific consensus has yet been reached for the risk factors for COVID-19. It is challenging to draw conclusions from the rapidly growing and widely diverse information, which can lead to delays in patient care decision making, increase the burden on healthcare systems, and worsen patients’ prognosis.

Epidy Ltd. has special expertise in the systematic evidence synthesis in real-world setting. With the help of artificial intelligence and epidemiological expertise, Epidy can support healthcare professionals and the public for better understanding of the factors associated with the development and prognosis of COVID-19.

Our goal is to keep the database updated by adding new results and articles regularly. Our resources are limited, and we have not received any funding for this project. Therefore, all kinds of contributions are welcome, including epidemiological and biostatistical expertise, IT support, or database expert work.

If you’d like to support our initiative, please contact us.
