The PROTECT COVID-19 National Core Study is an HSE led, UK-wide, research programme improving understanding of how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted from person to person, and how this varies in different settings and environments.

Public transport has been widely perceived as a high-risk sector for transmission of the COVID-19 virus, due to large numbers of people travelling in close proximity in enclosed spaces, often with limited ventilation.

This public transport sector evidence report summarises the evidence currently available on COVID-19 infection and mortality among employees in the public transport sector, as well as risk factors for infection and infection control measures in this sector.

You can also read the recent journal publication from this work: Transmission and control of SARS-CoV-2 on ground public transport: a rapid review of the literature up to May 2021
