There are about 1 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Cape Verde. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
The present study finds opportunities and justifications, taking into consideration that the nature of professional practice in health needs scientific evidence resulting from systematic and systemic studies to strengthen the basis for the decisions made to have an impact on various levels, from the patient to health management itself. In addition, Cabo Verdean authorities may benefit from new evidence obtained by this study. It intends, in a growing number of health professionals exposed or infected with SARS-CoV-2, in the different health structures of the country, to contribute to substantiate a better perception of the problem and the required solutions. Therefore, assessing the potential risk factors for SARS-CoV-2 infection among healthcare workers will be essential to characterize virus transmission, preventing future infections in them and providing the associated healthcare. Due to the advances and important changes described, questions arise that guide this research and allow us to identify the problem.
