This study found that poor sleep quality and high working pressure were positively associated with high risks of COVID-19 among a sample of health care workers from a single center in Wuhan, China.
Risk factors in the susceptibility for COVID-19, and infection patterns among HCWs have largely remained unknown.
This was a retrospective analysis of demographics, lifestyles, and contact status with infected subjects among 118 HCWs from a single-center. Follow-up duration was from Dec 25, 2019, to Feb 15, 2020.
The authors report:
12 HCWs were COVID-19 positive (10.2%).
