Lost on the Frontline: Explore the Database

KHN Original

As of Wednesday, the ongoing KHN-Guardian project is investigating 1,318 deaths of U.S. health workers in the fight against COVID-19. Today we add 14 profiles, including a young addiction counselor who “lived for her son,” a meticulous housekeeper looking forward to retirement and a physician assistant who was “mom of the ER.” You can explore our interactive database, now containing 244 profiles. It investigates the question: Did they all have to die?
