Around the world, coronavirus variants
continue to complicate the fight against COVID-19. In Brazil, healthcare
workers are struggling with the P.1 variant of the virus, which spread
rapidly around the country in early 2021 and caused a spike in hospitalizations.
To help protect Brazil’s frontline healthcare workers, the CDC Foundation
is supporting a research project to gather data on infection rates among
hospital workers. Implemented by the University of São Paulo School of
Nursing, the research project is part of an initiative aimed at
preventing the spread of COVID-19 at 10 hospitals in São Paulo and
Manaus, epicenters of the P.1 variant.
