Bartenders and waiters are still the occupational groups with the most confirmed corona cases, according to updated figures from an FHI study.

“Teachers and assistants in school and kindergarten also have a slightly higher incidence of infection than the average for everyone of working age. The number of confirmed infected doctors and nurses is again higher than average, after being lower than the average in the spring of 2021,” Karin Magnusson at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) stated on Thursday.

In the study, the FHI examined whether occupational groups with frequent contact with others have an increased risk of contracting the coronavirus. The study has now been updated with figures up to and including December 6.

Increased incidence of infection

The incidence of infection has increased in most occupational groups, and the differences between the occupational groups are largely the same as before.

Changes in testing patterns can also be a reason for the differences.

“For example, we now have extensive use of rapid tests, which may mean that fewer people test themselves at the testing stations now than at the beginning of the year. Some occupational groups may test themselves more often than others. In our analyses, it was only possible to include PCR tests,” she said.
