Health care workers plead for more supplies on social media to combat coronavirus

Health care workers are pleading on social media for more supplies to be able to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
One doctor posted on Twitter, "NYC. Mother of two, double frontline MD couple. Don't make us orphan our two toddlers. Running out of masks, eye protection and gloves at work."
Medical teams are facing thousands of cases in New York, the state that has the most reported number of coronavirus cases in the U.S.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged companies that might have the capabilities to make personal protective equipment to help out.
The White House coronavirus task force says it is hearing health care workers' cries, and is trying to make protective equipment available for them.
Fashion designer Christian Siriano tweeted, "If Governor Cuomo says we need masks my team will help make some. I have a full sewing team still on staff working from home that can help."
