According to a recent study from King’s College London, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) is not enough to completely eliminate the threat from the virus for frontline workers

As per CNN’s report, the study found that health care workers with adequate gloves, gowns and face masks still had 3.4 times the risk of contracting the coronavirus compared to the general population

The researchers used the Covid Symptom Tracker app to study the data of more than 2 million people, including almost 100,000 frontline health care workers

The study included Healthcare workers from the United States and the United Kingdom between March 24 and April 23
