Chinese nurses are shaving their heads to treat coronavirus patients because long hair spreads the virus


On Tuesday, confirmed coronavirus cases in China reached 42,000, with more than 1,000 deaths. On Monday, some 103 died in Hubei province alone, though the number of new infections dropped from Sunday, from 3,062 to 2,478. In reality, these numbers are likely higher as undiagnosed cases go undocumented. 

And while the Chinese government faces backlash over their handling of the outbreak, as well as the death of whistleblower Dr. Li Wenliang and the disappearance of journalist Chen Qiushi, many in China are focusing on the efforts of healthcare workers.
