Around 14% of total known cases are health workers in chilling warning for UK, but real figure probably far higher
The Spanish government has announced that 12,298 of the country’s health workers have tested positive for coronavirus – around 14% of its total sufferers.
The news is a chilling warning for the NHS, as the UK government is still not providing adequate personal protective equipment.
Worse, the total among Spanish health workers is likely to be far higher, as the Spanish government is only testing those with symptoms – and studies have shown that at any given time 50-75% of those infected are showing no symptoms.
