Chen, W.Q., Ling, W.H., Lu, C.Y., et al. (2009). Which Preventive Measures Might Protect Health Care Workers from SARS? BMC Public Health. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly. 52(19);433-436.
The article describes a retrospective study of health care workers infected with SARS during the 2003 outbreak in China that sought to identify measures that might have protected them from becoming ill. Measures found to be preventive included the use of double gloves; high-air flow ventilation on the wards; and avoidance of face-to-face contact with SARS patients.
