Have you been in direct contact with people who are sick with covid-19 and have never been infected? Did you have PCR or immunological tests and they came out negative?

If your answer is yes, you could be one of the rare people in the world who has a genetic resistance to SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes covid-19.

And if you are, you could have “very valuable” information on how to prevent this disease which has caused more than five million deaths in the world.

That is why a group of scientists from 10 countries is conducting a search to find these people resistant to SARS-Cov-2.
