Since the beginning of the pandemic we have recorded a total of 3,355 healthcare workers (HCW) screened at Emergency & Trauma Department (ETD) of Sabah Women and Childrens Hospital (HWKSS). This amounted to 8,823 swabs taken for HCWs from a total of 21,367 swabs taken in ETD during the same period. The average swab per HCW was 2.62 swab/person. From the 8,823 swabs taken, 46 HCWs were detected positive for Covid-19.
