A nurse who works at a New York hospital treating coronavirus patients took to YouTube to blow the whistle on "negligent doctors” who she says are "literally murdering" Black people.
According to the CDC, Black people account for 30% of deaths attributed to the virus. New York state has the highest rate of Covid-19 deaths at 19,000+.
But one nurse claims Black people are not dying from Covid-19 -- they are being "murdered" by "negligent" doctors.
Nicole Sirotek, an ICU nurse from Nevada who traveled to NYC to help out on the frontlines, posted a YouTube video describing the "gross negligence and mismanagement" that results in deaths of minority patients daily.
"Nobody cares because they're all minorities," Sirotek said in a video. She said she was once assigned to care for a patient who was already in a body bag.
"They're not dying of Covid. Yes, people are going to die of Covid, I know this, I'm not a new grad student. I am literally saying they're murdering these people. And nobody cares because they're all minorities and we're in the f**king hood and that's not okay."
While nurses are being honored during Nurses Week 2020, which begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, other nurses have come under attack on social media for posting thousands of TikTok videos of themselves dancing and twerking while on duty.
Twitter deleted many of the disgraceful videos that show just how narcissistic the nursing profession has become.

Listen, I respect the medical staff. Especially in hard times.
But I wouldn’t even act like this on the job when I worked overnight stocking at a supermarket.
This is beyond unprofessional. https://t.co/IMWbp7bGDF

We live in a bizarre liberal dystopia where we log in online to see nurses twerking in isolation ward. pic.twitter.com/Nx3j8KPjJF
