Nurses Read Names of Health Workers Who Died of COVID-19 Outside White House

Nurses read out the names of their colleagues who died after contracting COVID-19, in a protest staged outside the White House in Washington DC on Tuesday.

Members of the National Nurses United (NNU) practiced social distancing as they held photos of those who died of COVID-19 while labouring on the front lines as medical workers.

A man could be seen with a sign reading “20 seconds won’t scrub ‘hero’ blood off your hands.”

The rally was held as healthworkers were protesting the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) available as they treat patients infected by coronavirus.

Despite the nurses’ demand that the Trump administration’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issue an emergency temporary standard so that healthcare workers would be provided with personal protective equipment, they never received a response.

According to Johns Hopkins University, the country has registered 804,194 coronavirus cases with 43,200 deaths as of Tuesday.
