The California Department of Public Health drastically curtailed the kind of coronavirus data it is sharing with the public this week — including the number of health care workers who test positive for COVID-19 each day — at a time when the public is hungry for the information.

To the consternation of health care workers who say infection details are crucial to tracking and halting the pandemic. The number of infected health care workers in California jumped 52% in one day — from 48 to 73 — between Friday and Saturday, the last time the state reported the numbers. Before then, the numbers climbed by roughly six cases a day since March 24, when reporting began.

Asked to explain further, the department issued a statement saying, “We are closely monitoring outbreaks, as well as the impact of COVID-19 on our critical healthcare workforce.”

Healthcare workers and all our service members deserve additional pay for their efforts. They remain on the front lines as the first line of defense nursing sick patients to health. No amount of money can replace their lives but pay them what they are owed.

We need to make a stand for all healthcare workers state wide, please share, these statistics are just from California but the pandemic is in every state.
