Brooklyn medical center to use rain ponchos and garbage bags due to gown shortage

Dr. Wayne Riley, the president of the SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, said medical staff will have to start using rain ponchos and garbage bags instead of surgical gowns.

Riley told CNN the medical center only has enough gowns to last about one and half days.

“We cannot wait for the national stockpile to supply us. As we all know, the national stockpile is pretty diminished. So we’re going to get creative,” he said Saturday.
