Hospitals across the country run low on critical supplies during pandemic

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – Across the country, hospitals are running low on supplies to battle the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gloves, masks and ventilators are some of the most needed supplies right now.  Beckley ARH is currently doing okay on supplies, but community CEO Rocco Massey insists they’re being cautious, especially when it comes to masks. 

“While we have masks on hand, the most important thing about the masks is not whether we have the masks at this point, because we do, but that we utilize them the correct way,” Massey said. 

Most citizens who use masks either equip the wrong kind, or don’t wear them correctly making them ineffective and diminishes the supply that hospitals have.
