“To the people who say that wearing a mask perpetuates the conspiracy:
Tell that to the health care workers who have put their lives at risk to face firsthand an unknown disease. Tell that to the families of frontline workers who have contracted and succumbed to COVID-19 while their loved ones save everyone else.
To the people who say that COVID-19 does not exist; that COVID-19 is just another cold or flu:
Tell that to the families who did not have the opportunity to hold the hands of their loved ones as they passed; the families that had to say goodbye to their loved ones through a video chat or a phone call; the families who never dreamed that when they dropped their mothers, fathers, spouses, and siblings off at the ER, the next time they’d see them would be in a casket.”
Fady Youssef is a pulmonary and critical care physician.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “A frontline physician has a message for you.”
