As the Terror of COVID Struck, Health Care Workers Struggled to Survive. This number is far higher than that reported by the U.S. government, which does not have a comprehensive national count of health care workers who’ve died of COVID-19. So as 2020 draws to a close, we ask: Did so many of the nation’s health care workers have to die? In fact, health care workers were three times more likely than the general public to get COVID-19, other researchers found. Instead, scientists discovered that “front door” health workers like paramedics and those in acute-care “receiving” roles — such as in the emergency room — were twice as likely as other health care workers to be hospitalized with COVID-19.
