Evaluation of the risk of nosocomial transmission of Covid-19 (NOSO-COR)

Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 or Covid-19 is an emerging infectious disease that can cause severe respiratory infections with a mortality rate of 2-3%.

The risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 during hospitalization is significant and is increased in frail patients. The objective is to describe and document suspected or confirmed cases of nosocomial infections with SARS-CoV-2 occurring in hospital wards.

In Madagascar, the NOSO-COR study is coordinated by CICM and involves three university hospitals:

  • Joseph Raseta Befelatanana university hospital
  • Manarapenitra Antohatapenaka university hospital
  • Anosiala university hospital
