Screenshots published by Chinese media allegedly show a social media post by the deceased medical doctor who complained about the lack of protective equipment when working in the isolation stations.
The post said the nurses were forced to spend at least eight hours in isolation stations every day without putting on proper protective equipment.
According to the online account, they were supposedly forbidden to eat, drink water or even use the toilet during the long shift.
The social media post was allegedly uploaded at the end of January when the central Chinese city imposed a strict ban on its 11 million people after the outbreak of the coronavirus outbreak.

The fatal disease, which first appeared in Wuhan late last year, infected almost 17 million people worldwide and claimed at least 659,000 deaths.
The news comes when China reported 101 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, the highest number in a day in three months.
China – where the global outbreak first appeared – had largely controlled the domestic transmission through targeted locks, travel restrictions, and testing. Sporadic regional outbreaks have shown how difficult it is to keep the virus at bay.
The authorities registered a total of 98 domestic infections, of which 89 were found in Xinjiang, home to the country's most Uyghur ethnic minority.
A total of 84,060 people were infected with coronavirus in China, 482 of whom remain in the hospital. According to an official count, there were 4,634 deaths.
