US medical professionals have devised an inventive to celebrate Christmas in the time of the coronavirus: by decorating trees with facemasks, hand sanitizer and other personal protective equipment (PPE).

The trend is currently getting attention on social media, despite a continuing shortage of the equipment in increasingly burdened hospitals.

“Ohhhhh PPE . . . on my Christmas tree . . . makes me happy,” wrote one nursing school graduate above a Facebook photo of a tree adorned with a face shield and rubber gloves like an evergreen ER doctor.

An Interventional Pulmonary Fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital shared a Twitter pic of a tree decked out in disposable face masks. He quipped: “On the first day of #Christmas, my true love gave to me: appropriate PPE on a Christmas tree. Perhaps this will keep me Covid-Free.”
