Paper on heterogeneity in testing, diagnosis and outcome in SARS-CoV-2 infection published in CMAJ Open

Linwei and colleagues published a paper titled “Heterogeneity in testing, diagnosis and outcome in SARS-CoV-2 infection across outbreak settings in the Greater Toronto Area, Canada: an observational study” in CMAJ Open.

The study found that residents of long-term care homes and persons using shelters are 64-fold and 19-fold more likely to be diagnosed with COVID-19 than the rest of the population. Residents of long-term care homes are more likely to die after diagnosis. Findings signal the need for setting- and population-specific strategies in COVID-19 response.
