COVID-19 Risk 3 Times Higher For Front Line Workers

Front-line healthcare workers in the US and Britain are at a much higher risk of infection.

They are more than three times as likely to contract COVID during this pandemic.

They used the COVID Symptom Study smartphone app and recorded between March 24 and April 23.

Preliminary results also suggest that ethnic background and clinical setting influenced diagnosis.
