Three NHS nurses who had to wear bin bags for PPE test positive for coronavirus

Three NHS nurses who were forced to wear bin bags for protective clothing as they bravely treated coronavirus patients have tested positive for the disease.
Frontline staff at Northwick Hospital in Harrow, north London, claim they had to use makeshift Protective Personal Equipment (PPE). due to severe shortages of gloves, aprons and footwear.
Photographs circulated last month showing the nurses wearing clinical waste bags on their hands, feet and head as emergency rooms filled with sick patients.
All three nurses pictured in the image were diagnosed with coronavirus at a North London testing centre last week, the Telegraph has reported.
Staff say they are at high risk of contracting the disease from sick patients because bosses have failed to provide them with proper PPE.
