As Hospitals Lose Revenue, More Than A Million Health Care Workers Lose Jobs-NPR, 5/8

It’s an ironic twist as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the nation: The very workers tasked with treating those afflicted with the virus are losing work in droves. Emergency room visits are down. Non-urgent surgical procedures have largely been put on hold. Health care spending fell 18% in the first three months of the year. And 1.4 million health care workers lost their jobs in April, a sharp increase in the 42,000 reported in March, according to the Labor Department. Nearly 135,000 of the April losses were in hospitals. NPR, 05/08/2020
