According to an analysis of COVID-19 hospitalization data from 13 states, released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 6% of adults hospitalized with COVID-19 between March 1 and May 31 were health care personnel. Among those health care personnel, 36% were in nursing-related occupations, 73% had obesity as an underlying condition and 28% were admitted to an intensive care unit.

Health care personnel, “regardless of any patient contact, should adhere strictly to recommended infection prevention and control guidance at all times in health care facilities to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2, including proper use of recommended personal protective equipment, hand hygiene, and physical distancing,” the authors said. “Community mitigation and prevention efforts in households and congregate settings are also necessary to reduce overall SARSCoV-2 transmission.”
