German and international studies on SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence

Since the beginning of the year 2020, the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has spread globally at a tremendous pace. Seroepidemiological studies provide insight into the fraction of people that have already had the infection, including undetected infections.

Special Issue S4/2020 provides a brief overview of the highly dynamic current state of research with a particular focus on Germany: what are the most important methodological aspects for the evaluation of seroepidemiological studies? What results are already available? Which studies are currently collecting data? In addition, the results of international seroepidemiological studies and seroepidemiological studies in children are summarised.
