COVID-19 Effect on Medical Professionals:
The individuals that are most at risk are the ones in the medical profession. To treat patients they have to handle the patients infected with the virus very closely. It opens an immense door for the virus to reach their bodies too. The main mode of transmission is human-to-human transmission. They could contract the virus when the patients are being treated. Even, medical students and physicians are not clear of the perils of this virus. Health students participating in the research of the virus and its effects are particularly susceptible to the risk of being contaminated.
Researchers, specifically dealing with the virus are therefore exposed to the risk of being infected with the virus. Doctors, medical students and researchers are also recommended to follow appropriate safety procedures when getting into touch with each other virus affected patient themselves. A few confirmed instances of medical students and researchers being diagnosed with the virus still occur.
