In response to the growing global pandemic, MERQ conducted a study on the status of COVID-19 in Addis Ababa.
The study was conducted to explore the status of the pandemic (; examine the trends in morbidity and mortality and identify whether there is evidence of excess deaths that could be attributed to COVID-19, which have not been captured by the existing surveillance system; and explore the possible explanations for the pandemic’s current course of progression in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
