Abstract A study was conducted to determine the seroprevalence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 among public community and health care workers in Alzintan City, Libya. During the period from 2/4/2020 to 18/5/2020, a total of 219 blood samples were collected and analyzed for the presence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. Collection of samples were divided in two categories; random samples from public community and samples from health care workers belong to two Governmental hospitals and one… 
Seroprevalence of Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 among Health Care Workers in Kenya
TLDR
These initial data demonstrate a high seroprevalence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 among HCWs in Kenya, and there was significant variation in serop revalence by region, but not by cadre.
Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Antibody Screening in Healthcare Workers and Its Correlation with Clinical Presentation in Tertiary Care Hospital, Kathmandu, Nepal, from November 2020 to January 2021
TLDR
Assessing the anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody in health care workers is highly recommended in multiple healthcare settings as it can help in monitoring transmission dynamics and evaluation of infection control policies.
Seroprevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and associated factors in health care workers: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The seroprevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies among HCWs is high, and excellent adherence to infection prevention and control measures, sufficient and adequate personal protective equipment, and early recognition, identification and isolation of HCWs that are infected with Sars-Co V-2 are imperative to decrease the risk of SATS-Cov-2 infection.

These initial data demonstrate a high seroprevalence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 among HCWs in Kenya, and there was significant variation in serop revalence by region, but not by cadre.
Seroprevalence of Hospital Staff in Province with Zero COVID-19 cases
TLDR
COVID-19 antibody test could detect a substantial number of hospital staffs who could be potential silent spreaders in a province with zero CO VID-19 case and should be encouraged for mass screening, especially in asymptomatic healthcare workers.
Seroprevalence of hospital staff in a province with zero COVID-19 cases
TLDR
COVID-19 antibody test could detect a considerable number of hospital staff who could be potential silent spreaders in a province with zero CO VID-19 cases, and accurate antibody testing is a valuable screening tool, particularly in asymptomatic healthcare workers.
Current challenges of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) seroprevalence studies among blood donors: A scoping review
TLDR
Review and characterize SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence studies conducted using blood donors to investigate methodology and provide guidance for future research, finding differences in community transmission and diverse public health policies, study designs and methodology were likely contributing factors to serop revalence heterogeneity.
Seroprevalence and risk factors of COVID-19 in healthcare workers from 11 African countries: a scoping review and appraisal of existing evidence
TLDR
A varying but often high SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence in HCWs in 11 African countries and identified certain risk factors are found and public health strategies for policy and planning should consider these risk factors.

TLDR
The population prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in Santa Clara County implies that the infection is much more widespread than indicated by the number of confirmed cases.

TLDR
The analyses showed that tests using the S antigen are more sensitive than N antigen-based tests, and ELISA tests could be a safer choice at this stage of the pandemic.

Gender differences in patients with COVID-19: Focus on severity and mortality
TLDR
Older age and male gender are risk factors for worse outcome in patients with COVID, and men may be more prone to have higher severity and mortality independent of age and susceptibility.
Correlation of Chest CT and RT-PCR Testing in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in China: A Report of 1014 Cases
TLDR
Chest CT has a high sensitivity for diagnosis of CO VID-19 and may be considered as a primary tool for the current COVID-19 detection in epidemic areas, as well as for patients with multiple RT-PCR assays.
Early Transmission Dynamics in Wuhan, China, of Novel Coronavirus–Infected Pneumonia
TLDR
There is evidence that human-to-human transmission has occurred among close contacts since the middle of December 2019 and considerable efforts to reduce transmission will be required to control outbreaks if similar dynamics apply elsewhere.

TLDR
Radiologists in China and the United States distinguished COVID-19 from viral pneumonia on chest CT with high specificity but moderate sensitivity.
