From the front lines of the Covid outbreak in NYC MUA graduate-Adesh Anthony Ramdass, MD

From the front lines of the Covid outbreak in NYC writes recent MUA graduate:

 "COVID has transformed our lives, both in the healthcare field and with families. It has been like a scene from a horror movie. Daily I saw at least 10-15 patients die, helplessly without their families at their side. Walking in the Emergency room, patients were stacked upon each other, and every turn I made I saw a corpse. 

 It has been a horrible but excellent learning experience for me. Especially when my wife and I contracted the Virus in late March; the unknown and unpredictability of the symptoms were terrifying. Luckily we both recovered after 1 week and back to work. I have learned to be more empathetic and humble with my patients
