In this way, he protested and asked the government to provide them with adequate protective equipment.

The nurses said that to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, they needed qualified protective equipment to work safely. Many nurses said that because of the lack of N95 masks and protective masks, they had to reuse disposable medical supplies, which made them feel scared and uneasy when treating the growing number of patients with new coronary pneumonia.

Nurse Jones said: “Congress is discussing a new crown epidemic bill, but it does not provide mandatory occupational safety and health management safety standards for health care workers. This is unforgivable. So far, President Trump has also He did not use his presidency to require mass production of medical protective equipment. “

Nurse Rachel said:” As long as I have the ability, I am willing to help anyone, but if I die or become sick, I can’t help anyone. But if I ca n’t get proper protective equipment, I feel very unsafe at work. This is my demand. ”
