COVID-19 Deaths Among US Clinicians

Educational Objective
To identify the key insights or developments described in this article
1 Credit CME

More than 100 000 US health care personnel have contracted coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) since February and at least 641 have died, according to a report by health officials from the CDC and several states.

Based on data reported to the CDC between February 12 and July 16, the report reflects a 10-fold increase in cases among personnel at health care facilities since the last CDC analysis in April. At that time, nearly 10 000 COVID-19 cases and 27 deaths had been reported. The authors note that the current total likely underestimates the true number of cases among health care personnel because occupational status was available for fewer than one-quarter who had COVID-19.
