CBS News pushed viral video of nurse crying over pandemic shortages — then had to walk it back

The outlet picked up the video from the Instagram video of a lifestyle blogger and nurse Imaris Vera.

The video garnered 7.6 million views just from the CBS News tweet alone.

Many critics on social media began questioning the story and CBS issued a clarification from Vera on Monday.

"We were each assigned 1 N95 per 1 covid patient's room but was not allowed to wear it outside of the room, wear our own N95 mask around the Nurses station or Halls, which I came prepared with," Vera said according to CBS News.

"The hospital, Northwestern Medicine, acknowledged that Imaris Vera had quit her job, but referred CBS News to Vera as to the details of why," they tweeted.
