As the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the nation, U.S. hospital workers will be among the first to bear witness to the growing crisis.
The U.S. now leads the world in the number of COVID-19 cases, and some hospitals are already struggling to make sure they don’t run out of personal protective equipment, ventilators or even hospital workers.
Are you a doctor, nurse or other health care provider working in a hospital on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic? If so, NPR wants to hear from you.

Your voice will help us hear from health care workers all across the country, identify new aspects of the crisis for our reporters to cover and accurately capture what is happening in America’s hospitals as it is happening.
