The situation surrounding Coronavirus is constantly evolving. What is clear is that the only way to protect the community from the further spread is to stay home. Another thing that has become abundantly clear is that there is a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE is essential for healthcare workers to protect themselves so that they can continue to care for patients.
