A need for safety equipment at a New York City hospital reportedly became so unbearable this week that nurses there resorted to wearing trash bags as protection against the coronavirus.

The unusual scene was documented in a photo shared on social media of three nurses inside Mount Sinai West, according to the New York Post. One of them, it added, was holding the open box where the 33-gallon bags came from.

“NO MORE GOWNS IN THE WHOLE HOSPITAL,” its caption reportedly read. “NO MORE MASKS AND REUSING THE DISPOSABLE ONES… NURSES FIGURING IT OUT DURING COVID-19 CRISIS.”
