With just over , confirmed cases and an official death toll of 5,, Germany has withstood the pandemic much better than the United States, Italy, Spain and France. But just like those countries, it has suffered from a shortage of personal protective equipment PPE. The naked doctors said that outpatient and general practice care for COVID patients was as important as hospital care, putting them on the frontline in the fight to contain the coronavirus pandemic. They said their protest was inspired by Alain Colombie, a French doctor who last month posted nude pictures of himself to protest the lack of protective equipment. A German military plane brought 10 million medical masks from China on Monday.
