Coronavirus: Calls for personal protection equipment for frontline medical staff – BBC News

Frontline medics have told the BBC about their concerns over a lack of personal protection as they fight coronavirus in the UK. The British Medical Association says there’s growing evidence that thousands of doctors are still not getting the equipment they need to treat patients with coronavirus. The doctor’s union says it means some medics are likely to become very ill and some may die. But the government says 15 million masks have been delivered to NHS trusts across the country since Monday.

Prince Charles has also tested positive for the coronavirus. Clarence House says he is displaying “mild symptoms” but is otherwise in good health.
