We all know what the CDC’s PPE guidelines are. But we see pictures and video of healthcare workers — domestic and foreign — in full-body suits, n100 masks, or at least with head- and shoe-covers, and wonder if they are playing by different sets of rules.

In countries that are handling this pandemic well, what PPE do their doctors and nurses use? (Yeah I know most of that may be social distancing, but I just want to know about PPE.) What standard are they trying to maintain in China and Italy??
