Analysis on the risk factors of severe acute respiratory syndromes coronavirus infection in workers from animal markets



Analysis on the risk factors of severe acute respiratory syndromes coronavirus infection in workers from animal markets



Zhonghua Liu Xing Bing Xue Za Zhi 25(6): 503-505



To investigate the possible risk factors of severe acute respiratory syndromes coronavirus (SARS-CoV) infection in workers from animal markets. Self-designed questionnaires were used and serum samples were tested. Logistic regression analysis was used to analyze the data. Results from simple factor logistic regression analysis showed that jobs which dealing with domestic livestock, wild livestock, wild animals, aquatics were related to risk factors of SARS-CoV infection. Results from multifactor logistic regression analysis showed that jobs that dealing with wild livestock and poultry were important risk factors with OR 12.28 and 0.41. Job that dealing with palm civets was the main risk factor of SARS-CoV infection in animal market workers.
