Health care workers’ deaths from COVID-19 in India: What can we learn?
COVID–19 is the worst global pandemic of recent times. Health care workers (HCWs) are at increased risk of contracting this infection. However, many of these cases could have been prevented if adequate safety precautions had been taken by the individual himself/herself and the hospital. In this paper, we briefly look at what is known about COVID-19 infections and deaths among HCWs in India and will then provide guidance on what HCWs themselves and hospitals can do to reduce the risk of infections and deaths among HCWs.
