Doctors in China are unable to adequately supply themselves with, so far, one of the best ways to prevent transmission of the coronavirus: face masks. Nurses, doctors and other medical professionals fighting the new coronavirus have also been fighting dire shortages.
While proper handwashing techniques are essential in helping slow the spread of this, and many other infections, face masks that fit tightly to the face and even goggles to protect the eyes are in short supply. In fact, according to a report by MSN, some doctors have used tape to patch up battered protective masks, repeatedly reused goggles meant for one-time use, and wrapped their shoes in plastic bags for lack of specialized coverings.
