I’m a full-time ER doc getting ready to work a 24 hour shift in the emergency department. I am genuinely more concerned about going to work tomorrow morning than I was the day I launched on the space shuttle. 1.5% shuttle mortality vs 9-12% if I get COVID-19.— Dr. Bill Fisher (@DrBillFisher) April 1, 2020

This is a really excellent thread by a doctor who could be happily retired but is risking his life to save others. It’s definitely worth a read.
