One emergency room doctor in MI, an emerging epicenter of the pandemic, said that he was using one paper face mask for an entire shift due to a shortage and that hospitals in the Detroit area would soon run out of ventilators.

Neibart said he and his coworkers at the hospital are subsisting on fast food like pizza and doughnuts in the frenzy of their long hours.

As recently as March 10, he helped a nurse take off her protective gear after working with a patient who tested positive for the virus, the nurse said.

Employees of Mount Sinai West informed the media that Kelly's COVID-19 infection was potentially caused by a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE).

The New York Post reported that Kious Kelly, an assistant nursing manager at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, died on Tuesday. "I know I will see him again".

On its Facebook page, Mount Sinai West said it was "deeply saddened by the passing of a beloved member of our nursing staff", without naming Kelly. He is a nurse hero to the patients and nurses who he crossed path with.

In an email, a hospital spokeswoman, Lucia Lee, questioned the claim that the hospital had not provided protective equipment for its staff.

In the emailed statement, Lee added, "The troublesome photo circulating in the media specifically shows the nurses in the P.P.E. under trash bags".

She did not answer a question about why hospital staff carried trash bags.

Kelly lived a few blocks from the hospital and her colleagues described her as a dedicated and in a good mood. "He used to carry around a thick notepad holder that hides a box full of chocolates and sweets so he can have it handy to give out to miserable/ grumbly nurses and doctors who are more likely than not 'hangry'".

But nursing was not his first vocation.

It should be noted that New York City has a population of more than eight million. Mount Sinai West reportedly had "issues with supplies for about a year now", one source told the Post.

His family is now trying to bring his body back to MI. Sherron said his younger brother died alone.
