Health care workers falling ill amid lack of protections

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Confronted with a lack of protective equipment, health care workers treating coronavirus patients are reusing masks that are supposed to be used once and then discarded and are even making their own — and more are getting infected. Twelve staffers at Oregon Health and Science University have tested positive for COVID-19. The Oregon Health Authority said Monday that three more people in Oregon — men aged 80 and two 91-year-olds — have died from the virus, with the known state death toll at 16. The total of known coronavirus cases is 606.
