US Nurses Caring For COVID-19 Patients Can't Get Tested Themselves

It's been more than a month since the novel coronavirus COVID-19 reached pandemic levels in the US.

Now, a persistent shortage of tests mean that health workers are treating patients when they themselves are showing mild symptoms of COVID-19.

In New York City, an ICU nurse treated patients for three days after displaying symptoms of COVID-19 .

However, she couldn’t get a test from her hospital.

In Georgia, a nurse was denied a test after treating an infected patient who died.
