It’s like going into one of the hardest jobs you can imagine, for 12 and a half hours straight, where you are desperately understaffed, everyone’s working to the breaking point, and you may or may not even get a break to eat. All while you’re trying to take care of sick people but way too many of them are dying.
Dying from this potentially lethal, brand new virus.
Oh, and by the way – if you let your mind go there, you realize that the longer you do this the higher the odds are that you’ll get it.
But let’s be clear: Most people who are COVID positive don’t die – and they don’t need to be hospitalized. In fact, according to the CDC, there seems to be evidence that “as many as 25% of people infected are asymptomatic.”
So that’s what you keep telling yourself.
