Hendrik Streeck, principal investigator

The so-called COVID-19 Case-Cluster-Study – colloquially, Heinsberg study, marketed as Heinsbergprotokoll and HEINSBERG PROTOKOLL. – is an unfinished and unpublished study about the COVID-19 pandemic in Gangelt.

The study was commissioned and is co-financed by the government of Northrhine-Westfalia and is led by Hendrik Streeck. In the public sphere, the marketing agency StoryMachine advocates its results on Facebook and Twitter. Private enterprises also co-financed the study. First results of the study garnered cross-national media attention.[1]

The study aims to determine lethality of, and immunity to SARS-CoV-2; it also estimates the number of unrecorded cases.[2]

Despite the fact that sample size does not determine the representativeness of a study,[3] principle investigator Streeck claims, they examined more persons than recommonended by the World Health Organization, the study would "thus be statistically absolutely representative".[4][5]
