When reel medicine meets real medicine

Medical shows including Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor and Station 19 have been shut down as part of a large-scale attempt to contain the coronavirus. The shows don't have real doctors, but they do use real medical equipment, which they are now donating to hospitals and fire departments.

Krista Vernoff is executive producer of Gray's Anatomy and Station 19. She says, "At Gray's Anatomy, we have a back stock of gowns and gloves which we are donating." Other shows are donating masks. "We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this difficult time, and in addition to donations, we're doing our part to help them by staying home."
