COVID19 and Healthcare Deaths


According to a new report, more than 7,000 healthcare workers worldwide have died from treating patients with Covid-19. The two countries with the most deaths among medical professionals are Mexico (1,320) and the United States (1,077), followed at a distance by UK (649) and Brazil (634).

Those are large numbers, and the loss of medical personnel in areas that are under-served can be devastating.

If you wonder why medical facilities are so careful screening patients, there’s a good reason for their concern. They want to live through this, too.
