UK protective gear: Government criticised over distribution

Health workers in hospitals and care homes across the country are short of basic protection.

Medical workers in some parts of the United Kingdom are starting to run out of personal protective equipment (PPE).

That is despite the government saying there are enough PPE and those who need it most are getting it.

With a growing number of healthcare workers infected or dying, many are now improvising to keep themselves safe from COVID-19.
