Brief Summary:
Prospective Observational Swiss Cohort Study to Investigate Long-term Pulmonary and Extrapulmonary Effects of COVID-19.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
COVID-19 Other: COVID-19

Detailed Description:
COVID-19 is a coronavirus induced viral pneumonia leading to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Previous coronavirus infections (SARS and MERS) led to pulmonary fibrosis in up to 30%. Prospective evaluation of lung abnormalities and pulmonary fibrosis after COVID-19 infection is crucial as novel treatments against lung fibrosis of different etiologies are available. No data on pulmonary longterm effects in COVID-19 survivors are currently available. The nation-wide Swiss COVID-19 lung group establishes a meticulously characterized prospective cohort study on pulmonary long-term sequela of patients living in Switzerland.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pulmonary follow-up sequelae in patients after COVID-19 [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Number of patients with the long-term pulmonary complications by measuring lung function, exercise testing and radiological Imaging

  2. Evaluation of risk factors for adverse Outcome after COVID-19 [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Number of patients with risk factors including comorbidities and other cofactors and correlate them to adverse outcome in patients after COVID-19


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compare the functional Pulmonary outcome of COVID-19 disease [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Compare pulmonary function measurements between mild and moderate to severe and critical COVID-19 disease

  2. Compare the radiological Pulmonary outcome of COVID-19 disease [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Compare imaging measurements between mild and moderate to severe and critical COVID-19 disease

  3. Quality of Life after COVID-19 [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Compare Quality of Life questionnaires between mild and moderate to severe and critical COVID-19 disease

  4. Physical performance after COVID-19 using Clinical Frailty Scale [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    To observe and compare the physical performance after COVID-19 via the Clinical Frailty Scale between mild and moderate to severe and critical COVID-19 disease

  5. Physical performance after COVID-19 using frailty assessment tests [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    To observe and compare the physical performance after COVID-19 via frailty assessment tests between mild and moderate to severe and critical COVID-19 disease

  6. Microbiota and COVID-19 [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Number of patients with changes in microbiota in response to COVID-19 by microbiota analysis of sputa, bronchoalveolar lavage and swaps
