Doctors in the U.S. face a medical equipment shortage, with some doctors reusing their face masks and others only using them for severe cases. According to Business Insider, a shortage in face masks puts healthcare workers at risk of getting the coronavirus. In response, people at home are donating their own face masks to try and help the problem. Two women from California created a website that matches people with supplies with hospitals in need. Others are following suit and creating forms for community donations with volunteers to pick up and deliver supplies.
