The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched a new study to determine the rate of COVID-19 infection among U.S. children.

The study, known as the Human Epidemiology and Response to SARS-CoV-2, or HEROS, will recruit  6,000 people from 2,000 U.S. families located in 11 cities, according to a statement from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The participants will be pooled from other NIH-funded pediatric research studies, in order to expedite recruitment, and will include healthy children and children with asthma or other allergic conditions.
