by | Apr 3, 2023 | Journal papers, Theme 3: Sector-specific studies | 0 comments

This  paper by PROTECT theme 3 researchers and the Virus Watch community cohort study, investigates how occupational differences in SARS-CoV-2 infection risk has changed over time, and includes updated data from the Omicron wave in England and Wales.

Most pronounced occupational differences in infection risk were apparent early in the pandemic, but elevated infection risk was apparently in teachers in all pandemic waves compared to office-based professional occupations. Education and healthcare workers had elevated infection risk during the Omicron wave.
