COVID-19 has killed close to 300 US healthcare workers, new data from CDC shows

from KUOW-FM

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% of the case reports sent to the CDC included information that could help identify the patient as a healthcare worker. Among known healthcare workers, there was also missing information about how many of those people actually died. Still, the growing number of healthcare workers infected by the coronavirus provides sobering evidence that many are still working in high-risk settings without reliable or adequate protection against the virus. more
