Sonja Reinert, a nurse in a maternity ward at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, made an emotional plea on her Facebook page, calling for people to look around for any masks they may have at home.
She also said that people had been stealing hand sanitizers from the hospital and staff were no longer able to leave them around patients’ rooms.
“We need them. We don’t have a lot. If you have face masks, any kind of face mask is better than nothing.”
The hospital is holding a donation drive to collect protective gear for medical workers.
At least 56 people have died from coronavirus in Georgia.
