Coronavirus (313) Testimony from US Hospital ER MD

2 April, 2020

Dear HIFA, Below is a link to a report from an ER MD that describes his experiencesand lessons learned in the heat of battle while fighting to save the lives of Covid 19 patients at a hospital in New Orleans where he works.

I think the doctor's report is sufficiently documented to be of use for sharing with other doctors in similar predicaments.

Kind regards, Daniel
