COVID-19: 3 UK nurses forced to wear trash bags during gear shortage get coronavirus

000 Nurses UK

Three British nurses who were photographed wearing trash bags because of the desperate shortage of emergency gear have all tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a report. Photos of the trio in the makeshift protective garb sparked outrage in the UK — similar to The Post’s exclusive revelation of identical desperate measures adopted by nurses at Mount Sinai West in Manhattan. Now the three unidentified nurses have all tested positive for the deadly contagion they were bravely trying to battle, according to the Telegraph.

The women were all front-line workers at north London’s Northwick Park Hospital, the first in the country to declare a critical incident after being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients, the Telegraph says. It is so bad there, more than 50% of staff in one ward — including the matron and ward manager — had been infected by the bug, the UK paper says. It comes amid an alarming shortage of personal protective equipment for health care workers in the UK, much as in the US.

“We can confirm that a number of staff members working in our COVID-19 positive areas have tested positive for the coronavirus,” a spokesman for the London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust told the paper. “This is unfortunate but not unexpected, as it corresponds with the experience of healthcare workers across the world. “We are providing full support to those of our staff members who become unwell, and wish them a swift recovery,” the spokesman said.  –NY Post
