“At some Spanish hospitals, doctors and nurses resort to taping garbage sacks to their arms to shield themselves while they work to save an avalanche of patients fighting for breath. They’ve run out of disposable coats.” (Places in the US are not much better off as a desperate shortage of personal protective equipment is hindering testing almost as much as the lack of test kits.)

+ Since doctors and nurses can’t protect themselves, this is not a surprise. Target and Walmart aren’t protecting staff amid pandemic, workers say. (I had to make a Walgreens run yesterday and saw several employees sans gloves or any other protection.)
