A nurse in the oncology department at Salem Health Hospital in Orego, United States, bragged about not taking precautions against COVID-19 in a video she posted on TikTok.
The post, which has since been deleted, had the description: “When my co-workers find out that I always travel, that I don’t wear a mask when I go out and let my children play with other children” .
