There is a noticeable lack of facemasks at the hospitals in the Southern and Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst). Now the organization is asking for help from dentists, among others.
“This is challenging and has the highest priority,” said Cathrine Lofthus, director of Helse Sør-Øst, at a press conference on Thursday.
“We are now turning to dentists and others for help,” she says.
A number of hospitals have already announced that they must ration contamination equipment such as facemasks, gloves and Antibac.
