Local 12: Misunderstood guidelines about Covid overwhelming doctors

The recent surge in COVID-19 is driving the number of cases to record highs in the course of the pandemic. The impact is being felt at area hospitals who continue to battle the pandemic. In a story published by WKRC-TV, Carl Fichtenbaum, MD, of the Division of Infectious Diseases at the UC College of Medicine, said that the surge is putting a lot of stress on healthcare providers.

“I think many people will sit on their–so to speak–front porch and think, ‘oh its not that bad,’ or ‘oh, I just had a cold its not a big deal.’ But they don’t get to walk in our shoes they don’t get to see what we see,” said Fichtenbaum.
