from NPR

The numbers mark a staggering increase from six weeks ago when the CDC first released data on coronavirus infections and deaths among nurses, doctors, pharmacists, EMTs, technicians and other medical employees. On April 15, the agency reported 27 deaths, and more than 9,000 cases of infection in healthcare workers. The latest tally doesn't provide a full picture of illness in this essential workforce, because only 21 percent of the case reports sent to the CDC included information that could help identify the patient as a healthcare worker. more
