The scene: In 2020, PPE shortages
left doctors, nurses, and other frontline health workers dangerously ill-equipped to care for patients, with limited access to supplies such as gloves, medical masks, respirators, goggles, face shields, gowns, and aprons.
The scenario: Your local health clinic is low on PPE and health workers are having to re-use masks and gowns while treating patients. Your friend, who works at the clinic, is texting the group chat about the shortage of respirators, having to re-use her KN95 mask beyond what is recommended, and wearing a trash bag as a gown to treat her patients.
After hearing their story, what do you do?
