Differential Risk of SARS-CoV-2 Infection by Occupation: Evidence from the Virus Watch prospective cohort study in England and Wales

by | Dec 15, 2021 | Journal papers, Theme 3: Sector-specific studies | 0 comments

This preprint paper, produced by researchers as part of Theme 3 of the PROTECT study, uses data from the Virus Watch prospective cohort of more than 12,000 people in England and Wales to calculate the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection among different occupational groups.

The research found an increased risk of infection among nurses, doctors, carers, teachers and warehouse workers compared to other occupations. This risk was most apparent in the early stages of the pandemic, reducing in the third quarter of 2021 for most groups, but with teachers demonstrating persistently elevated risk.
