Medical workers are asking the public to demand the government to step up and deliver supplies in order to keep helping the public.
Can’t stress it enough how grateful I and the people of Ohio are for our healthcare workers who are putting themselves and their health last for all of us. With their sacrifice comes risks that they will also contract the coronavirus.
That’s exactly what happened to a nurse at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center as 10TV reports have tested positive to the COVID-19.
The nurse union says the nurse is being quarantined at home, is doing well and their family is taking the necessary precautions to avoid catching it.
Like many across the country, OSU medical workers and hospitals are not fully supplied and are having to reuse masks daily.
“We need adequate access to personal protective equipment, PPE. We need the federal government to fully enact the Defense Production Act powers, and for the Trump Administration to prioritize production of masks and gowns and gloves,” said Rick Lucas, President of the Ohio State University Nurses Organization.
Lucas also is asking the public to contact your local state representative to demand more supplies for healthcare workers.
“We really need people to call (their) representatives and put pressure on them to increase production. The homemade masks are not tested to show how much protection they offer. And so we really need the proper equipment to protect ourselves and protect the patients.”

You're living in a building the size of a private resort getaway with a net worth of $150,000,000 and you're askin people that live paycheck-to-paycheck that also can't work to donate?— Zakk (@zakkwastaken) March 25, 2020
The message is respectable, but c'mon man. The public isn't about to fund entire hospitals. pic.twitter.com/kIqaSpUmvV

So lemme get this straight. You are asking the millions of American who may not have a job right now to donate?! You're asking people who have an avg HOUSEHOLD income of less than $55,000 to donate? Am I getting that right?— Homebody (@mellly_mel) March 24, 2020
