Ming Lin, an emergency room physician in Washington state, said he was told Friday he was out of a job because he’d given an interview to a newspaper about a Facebook post detailing what he believed to be inadequate protective equipment and testing.

In New York, the NYU Langone Health system has warned employees they could be terminated if they talk to the media without authorization.
