A thanks to all health workers.

Chinese officials have given figures for health workers infected with the new coronavirus, amid concerns about shortages of protective equipment.

Six health workers have died and 1,716 have been infected since the outbreak, they said.

Zeng Yixin, vice minister of China's National Health Commission, said 1,102 medical workers had been infected in Wuhan, where the outbreak began, and another 400 in other parts of Hubei province.

He said the number of infections among staff was increasing.

I've wondered what 'total count' was as had seen something other day re "50 infected" at one spot... likely low totals too when you consider that early in the outbreak the sick were spitting at doctors/nurses etc. I saw one video where guy took his face mask off and coughed in faces of nurses/desk staff, and watched the 'elevator man' do his thing...wonder how smart they feel about that now???
