This is the kind of story that ends up with us in Facebook purgatory for 30 days. The official narrative engineers in the mainstream media… not so much.
CBS News tweeted a viral video showing a nurse named Imaris in the throes of an emotional breakdown over the conditions she was being forced to endure while treating patients with the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China.
In tears, a nurse says she quit her job after she was asked to work in a coronavirus ICU without a face mask: “America is not prepared, and nurses are not being protected” https://t.co/ywoSuLOPYP pic.twitter.com/S5BsnlO5nt

You had to dig up a crisis actor from Instagram, Lol. Sad.
I asked both of my nieces who are nurse practitioners and they said

What are the chances you verified this? Find out the hospital, ask about this policy and this woman…you know, journalism.

Imaris Vera, the nurse in this video, clarified her experience on Monday in a tweet: "We were each assigned 1 N95 per 1 covid patient’s room but was not allowed to wear it outside of the room, wear our own N95 mask around the Nurses station or Halls, which I came prepared with."

(Daily Caller) “We were each assigned 1 N95 per 1 covid patient’s room but was not allowed to wear it outside of the room, wear our own N95 mask around the Nurses station or Halls, which I came prepared with,” Imaris admitted. This was different than her original story, which claimed that nurse’s were not being protected.
Imaris quit her job on her very first day back, it was also discovered. The nurse admitted that she suffers from “anxiety and bi-polar depression.” Imaris noted that she was “feeling a heavy toll with transitioning back into the ICU after being away from the bedside for over a year,” according to a post shared by Schachtel. That post was written before her first day back on the job.
