June 6, 2020

Nearly 600 U.S. health workers who have been in direct contact with coronavirus patients have died of the disease since the pandemic began, according to estimates by The Guardian’s Lost on the Frontline and the organization based at Kaiser Health News (KHN) in San Francisco (USA).

The deceased include doctors, nurses and important hospital staff such as certificates or employees.

Most of the identified individuals are estimated to be black or Asian, far above those offered by the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which is responsible for this type of balance.

In fact, the body that counts the deceased at 363 has recognized that the death toll is much higher than estimated given the workload in other areas to fight the disease.
