America is running out of thermometers
(CNN) -- Add thermometers to the list of medical instruments that are in short supply because of the coronavirus. More recently, massive employers -- including state governments and major corporations -- have been ordering thermometers for daily wellness checks on their employees. "You cannot make enough [thermometers] right now," Howard Karesh, vice president of corporate communications for Hillrom, a major medical supply company, told CNN Business Friday. More than half of the world's thermometers are made in China, according to multiple medical supply makers and distributors. He said many retailers have recently replenished their depleted supply of thermometers sold directly to consumers after a massive shortage from late February through March.
