Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

COVID-19 Podcast: Transmission from patient to health care worker.

Dr. Cameron feels that the best way to get to know COVID-19 is through reviewing actual cases. In this Podcast episode, he will discuss the risk for patient to health care worker and patient-to-patient transmission of CVID-19

Wang and colleagues first discussed this case in the journal JAMA in 2020. The authors 138 Hospitalized Patients WithCOVID-19 infected Pneumonia in Wuhan, China

You may be wondering why I am discussing COVID-19 during an Inside Lyme podcast. First, I am concerned for my children and grandchildren. Second, I am concerned about my Lyme disease patients.  Lastly, I need to understand the disease.

Forty hospitalized health care workers were presumed to have been infected in the hospital. Ten of the health care workers contracted COVID-19 from a single patient. 

The authors also described patient-to-patient transmission.  The authors traced the transmission from one patient to three others.
