Why is it so hard to get a comprehensive count and description of the health care workers who have died from COVID-19? Are agencies … not keeping track, or hiding what they find? ProPublica recently told of an anesthesiologist who was disturbed by that question … and made tracing the ‘lives lost’ her mission. Journalist Nina Martin’s article is: Nobody Accurately Tracks Health Care Workers Lost to COVID-19. So She Stays Up At Night Cataloging the Dead. Plus Yvonne Slosarski from healthcare workers union 1199 SEIU talks about how they advocate for personal protective equipment and crisis pay.
