SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence among 7,950 health-care workers in the Region of Southern Denmark

Short summary

The prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies was low in HCWs. However, the occupational risk for contracting the infection is higher for those working on dedicated COVID-19 wards. Further, our results imply that attention should be paid to occupational risk factors in planning pandemic preparedness.


Rationale

Objective

Health-care workers (HCWs) carry a pronounced risk of acquiring severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. We aimed to determine the seroprevalence and potential risk factors of SARS-CoV-2 infection among HCWs in the Region of Southern Denmark after the first pandemic wave in the spring of 2020.
