ECRAID PRESS RELEASE – European response to monkeypox virus outbreak

The impacts of healthcare professionals being research participants are often neglected. As professionals, they tend to be perceived as ‘immune’ to many negative effects of sharing their experiences. However, in the context of an ongoing global pandemic such as COVID-19, these assumptions can be clearly challenged. In March 2022, the RECOVER Social Science team, together with other collaborators, published a new article that draws on their experiences of conducting single and longitudinal qualitative interviews with Health Care Professionals (HCP) in primary, secondary and tertiary settings during the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe during 2020.

Social Science team investigates conditionality of COVID-19 vaccine acceptance in Europe

At the beginning of 2022, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has not stopped yet. Despite high vaccination coverage, the number of positive cases has reached a record level. In addition, a new SARS-CoV-2 variant has emerged (Omicron variant) with a higher infection rate compared to previous variants. Both of these aspects may have a significant effect on the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 within households. However, the extent of that effect has not yet been quantified. Therefore, a new study to analyse the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 infections within households was launched in January 2022.
