Doctor who has lost over 100 patients to covid says some deny virus from their deathbeds: ‘I don’t believe you’ (Washington Post)

Washington Post: Doctor who has lost over 100 patients to covid says some deny virus from their deathbeds: ‘I don’t believe you’. “Trunsky’s post detailing his interactions with eight covid patients and their relatives highlights the resistance and mistreatment some health-care workers across the United States face while caring for patients who have put off or declined getting vaccinated. Trunsky estimates that 9 out of every 10 covid patients he treats are unvaccinated. His post — a plea for people to get vaccinated — also reveals the physical and emotional toll the pandemic has had on health-care workers, who have been on the front lines for over a year and a half. Roughly 3 out of 10 have considered leaving the profession, according to a Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll, and about 6 in 10 say stress from the pandemic has harmed their mental health.”
