Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) seek COVID-19 positive patients in the Washington, D.C. area to understand how coronavirus affects the function of the body's immune system in controlling the infection and how different organs of the body (such as the lungs, heart, brain, and kidneys) respond to the infection from its early appearance to recovery, and whether there are any long-term effects of the infection on the organs of the body.

You can participate if you:
