Lost on the frontline is a project by the Guardian and Kaiser Health News that aims to document the life of every healthcare worker in the US who dies from Covid-19 during the pandemic. From doctors to hospital cleaners, and from nursing home aides to paramedics, this project will capture the diverse range of frontline health workers risking their lives to help others in this fight. You can read more about the project here .
If you know a healthcare worker who has died from Covid-19, we’d like you to share their story.
We are specifically documenting workers who were exposed while treating or caring for patients with Covid-19 during the pandemic, or were exposed because they worked at a medical facility serving Covid-19 patients. These include but are not limited to:
Paramedics and EMTs
Home health aides
Nursing home staff
Mental health workers
Environmental services staff
Food service workers or cleaning crews at medical facilities
Porters who transport patients
While we can’t profile everyone in depth, our goal is to mark every death we can.
