New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is asking retired health care professionals and qualified medical students to help with coronavirus treatments.
Beyond a U.S. shortage of surgical masks, virus test kits and ventilators, the country is also in short supply of medical professionals to treat patients and operate the related medical equipment.
“NYS is calling on recently retired health care professionals to sign up to be part of a reserve staff if the need arises.” the governor tweeted Thursday. “We also need qualified medical and nursing school students & staff.”
