Mourning 'supermom': US health worker casualties mount

WPIX's Aliza Chasan first reported this story. One reason could be due to the large number of COVID-19 patients needing care, some members of the medical staff have difficulty doing so due to priority reasons. That's consistent with the demographics of who works in health care, researchers said.

At least 9,200 health care workers in the U.S. have been infected by the coronavirus since the outbreak of the deadly pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Wednesday.

NY state and some other hard-hit areas continue to report sharp decreases in hospitalizations and numbers of patients on ventilators, although front-line healthcare workers and resources remained under extraordinary stress. "We know their institutions are trying to provide material to help them work safely, but already thousands have been infected".

Between 10% and 20% of US coronavirus cases are health care workers, though they tended to be hospitalized at lower rates than other patients, officials reported Tuesday. They are working on the front line of the pandemic. Around 90% of them were not hospitalized.

Apple and Google combine to build complex coronavirus tracking system
Most importantly, a public health authority can not ask a phone to gather a list of every other phone it has been in contact with. Google added in the statement that Play Services will be used in both phases of implementing the tracing system.

Kaiser Health News and The Guardian have launched a project called "Lost on the Frontline" to document the lives of health care workers who die during the pandemic. "This is likely an underestimation", the report said, because the occupational status of patients was available for only 16 percent of the cases in the United States reported to the CDC, The New York Times reported.

The CDC data released Tuesday showed that 73% of the health workers falling ill are female and their median age is 42.

The agency said that among states with more complete reporting of the occupational status of those reporting positive for the virus, the number of infected health care workers rose to 11 percent.

"It's an insult that we can't even honor or respect these colleagues in a respectful way", he said.
