I spent 2 days in the "hot zone" in New York hospitals, witnessing needless death and heartache, and heroic, shattered health workers. One doctor spends her days treating patients, holding their hands--then goes home and cries. Her message: "Stay home."https://t.co/kGPrJSEywz— Nicholas Kristof (@NickKristof) April 11, 2020
My husband and I are recovering from COVID-19.— Maggie Astor (@MaggieAstor) April 6, 2020
We’re getting better. But it’s taken more than two weeks to say that, and that was with the “mild” version, meaning no trouble breathing. This virus is absolutely brutal. “Mild” is not mild by any normal definition. Thread: 1/x
So, the last week I have been battling COVID-19 & Pneumonia. Never in my life have I been this ill. “Young people aren’t at risk, they’ll only have mild symptoms” Wrong.— Bradley (@bradleyziffer) March 19, 2020
I want to open up about the difficulties I’ve gone through these past days, what it was like in the ICU...
