TOPLINE 294 healthcare workers have died from Covid-19 after fighting it on the frontlines, according to CDC data, which the National Nurses Union says is a consequence of PPE shortages.

KEY FACTS
  • 62,690 healthcare workers have contracted coronavirus, resulting in 294 casualties, according to new CDC data.
  • There are likely more healthcare worker casualties, as only 21% of cases reported to the CDC include information that could identify the patient as a healthcare worker.
