Abstract

The ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, places healthcare workers
at an increased risk of infection as they are in close contact with patients. In this article, we report an overview of cases of infected healthcare workers in China and Italy during the early periods of the COVID-19 epidemic. China’s coronavirus response highlights the importance of implementing effective public health
strategies. The authorities worldwide therefore, need to be extremely cautious when they implement stringent
protective measures that safeguard healthcare workers in hospitals and counteract the threats created by the pandemic.
