COVID-19 Surveillance – Transmissions by Occupation Report
As lockdown continues to impact industries and workers around the globe severely, the risk of occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 varies, depending on the industry and the need for close contact (within 2 m) with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases. Surveillance of the health and safety of workers at risk is therefore vital to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the workforce in South Africa. This report describes the confirmed COVID-19 positive cases by sex, age-group and occupation.
