Gov. Baker is “enormously frustrated” with lack of personal protection equipment in Massachusetts for healthcare workers.
“I can’t tell you how frustrated governors, including this one, are about the issue associated with landing the order,” Baker said. “I stand here as someone who has had confirmed orders for millions of pieces of gear evaporate in front of us.”
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health reported on Thursday that 25 people have died of coronavirus and there are 2,417 confirmed cases.
“Our first responders, our health care workers, everyone deserves to have that gear,” he said. “We’re killing ourselves trying to make it happen.”
