Abstract

The corona virus COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) has recently created a worldwide pandemic. COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time and the greatest challenge we have faced since world war-II. With a death rate that is climbing rapidly, the disease has been declared a global emergency. A substantial number of healthcare workers tested positive for the disease across the world. The pressure of caring for patients is amplified in the setting of a virus with human-human transmission and no specific lifesaving treatment. Handling life and death situations while simultaneously putting one's own life at risk contributes to an actual sense of danger. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is used every day by healthcare personnel (HCP) to protect themselves, patients, and others when providing care. PPE helps protect health care workers from potentially infectious patients and materials, toxic medications, and other potentially dangerous substances used in healthcare delivery. PPE shortages are currently posing a tremendous challenge to the healthcare system because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
