"This is not working. I don't have the gear to protect my staff or myself," one doctor told "Nightline." Health care workers are getting COVID-19 as they work to stop the pandemic.

Medical professionals fight to keep up patient care, but they lack enough equipment to properly protect themselves. Doctors, nurses and health care workers across the nation share their stories.
Health care professionals are still going to work each day without sufficient masks, gloves, gowns and other supplies, and are begging for proper personal protective equipment (P.P.E.). In a country that spends more on health care than anywhere else on the planet, masks are being rationed or reused, and some hospital workers are even using novelty rain ponchos to protect themselves. Health care workers around the country are falling ill and dying — The Brooklyn Hospital Center estimated a third of its doctors and nurses are home sick with the virus. Meanwhile, President Trump has openly accused health care workers of being wasteful and hoarding masks. In the above Op-Ed video, nurses and physicians from around the country are demanding that the government take aggressive action to get them sufficient equipment. Right now.
There has been an outpouring of appreciation and admiration for our first responders who risk their lives on the frontlines every day to save the lives of others in this pandemic. Across the nation, Americans are writing thank you notes to those first responders for their selfless courage in working to keep them safe. Aired on 04/13/2020.
