STUDY ON THE IMPACT OF COVID 19 ON HEALTHWORKERS

The University of KwaZulu-Natal in partnership with the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), will conduct a joint survey investigating the impact of Covid-19 on healthcare workers who are on the frontline of the global fight against COVID-19. Across the world, with South Africa being no exception, many healthcare workers have been infected with the virus. UKZN and the HSRC seek to understand how the virus is affecting South African healthcare workers - both physically and emotionally.
