Report Finds EMS at High Risk for COVID-19

A recent report from the American Paramedic Association and the National EMS Management Association finds that EMS providers are at higher risk of death from COVID-19 than other healthcare providers or first responders. “In the U.S., paramedic COVID-19 related deaths are about three times greater than nurses, five times greater than physicians, and 20% greater than police and firefighters,” says the report. The EMS advocacy groups say EMS workers should

receive COVID-19 vaccinations as soon as possible.
