Medical staff is not guilty of a lack of personal protective equipment (PPE), said the head of the Royal College of nursing of great Britain, Donna Kinnair on April 11, according to The Sun.
“In fact, I am offended by the words that medical workers abuse PPE,” she said. “I think it is known that we do not have enough stocks and regular supplies of PPE,” Kinnair added.
Earlier, the head of the British Ministry of health, Matt Hancock, called on health workers to treat the means of protection as a valuable resource, and use them only if necessary.
Hancock promised to launch an online portal for health care workers within a few weeks, where they can order their own protective equipment. According to the official, this will allow real-time tracking of demand.
