As of Wednesday, the ongoing KHN-Guardian project is investigating 1,198 deaths of U.S. health workers in the fight against COVID-19. Today we add nine new profiles, including a VA housekeeping aide remembered for his love of laughter and a certified nursing assistant with a big personality. You can explore our interactive database, now containing 202 profiles. It investigates the question: Did they all have to die?
“Lost on the Frontline” is an ongoing project by Kaiser Health News and The Guardian that aims to document the lives of health care workers in the U.S. who died from COVID 19, and to investigate why so many are victims of the disease.
