As hospitals start to max out, medical workers beg officials for new Covid-19 mandates

12 月 9, 2020World News

(CNN)Dr. Cleavon Gilman served in the Iraq War, but he said that doesn’t compare to the battle he’s fighting as an emergency room physician in Arizona.

“This pandemic is a lot worse than being in Iraq just because when you’re in a war zone, you can leave that war zone. You can fly out of Iraq; you’re OK here in the United States,” the Yuma doctor said.
“With this pandemic, you cannot fly anywhere … the war is being waged everywhere.”
Now Gilman and other health care workers are pleading for more public safety rules — such as mask mandates or stay-at-home orders — to prevent hospitals from bursting past capacity.
“You can’t overwhelm a hospital and expect that care is not going to be compromised as a result,” Gilman said.
