Project description Which people are most at risk for the coronavirus? Why this research? It is said that everyone is at the same risk of contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19). Still, some population or occupational groups seem to be infected more often than others. What is being studied? n this study, it is examined which people have tested positive for the corona virus more often than others. This could include people with a certain profession or a very low income. The influence of the circumstances in which people live or work on the risk of becoming ill is also examined. This could include the size of a family or the living space. Count and tell Figures only tell part of the story. That is why discussions will also be held with people themselves. In this way they can indicate what could help them to stay healthy. The ultimate goal is to fight the corona virus in a fair (er) way.
