Proper PPE protects against coronavirus, reveals Wuhan study

None of the doctors and nurses became infected even while working in ICU, report Chinese researchers

Health workers who have appropriate personal protective equipment including protective suits, masks, gloves, goggles, face shields and gowns don't develop COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for the virus, a Chinese study suggests.

Researchers examined data on 116 doctors and 304 nurses who were deployed to Wuhan for 6-8 weeks from 24 January to 7 April.

They were all involved in aerosol-generating procedures and provided with appropriate PPE to care for patients with COVID-19.
