“I have my mask on this day here and I guard it with my life because it could be my life. We were rumored to have a two-day supply, “he added.” We really do not have a deep bullpen. If people are sick and they come out, which takes people from the front lines to help with this. But in the same way, you do not want to be sick and to be around people who come to the emergency department are already people who are most sick are most in need in the United States. So we tried to test our health workers as quickly and efficiently as we can and get them back in the ballgame, if possible. “

Anderson says “there is a lot of stress” among medical professionals now, and he described the mood as “scary.”

“In 35 years of practice, I can say that this is the most anxiety that I’ve seen around the idea of ​​infectious diseases,” he said. “We are at the forefront and it’s scary, that’s where the victim is always the case in every battle.”

Anderson stressed the importance of smoothing curves to keep the spread of the disease outbreak at manageable levels for health care workers.

“We need to make sure that if this goes on until June, that it is a gradual rise and fall,” he said. “And the way we need to do it now is by socially isolating ourselves and hunkering down so we do not spread the virus.”
