NBC News: Essential medical workers say they’re bearing the brunt of omicron surge

NBC News: Essential medical workers say they’re bearing the brunt of omicron surge. “Last week, as people waited for Covid tests in lines that wound down city blocks, CityMD, the privately owned urgent care clinic in New York and New Jersey, announced that it was temporarily closing 19 of its 150 locations because of staffing shortages. It closed more locations Wednesday. Emergency Medical Service crews from New York City’s Fire Department are answering more than 4,000 calls a day, largely from people with Covid-19 symptoms, while 30 percent of EMS staff members are on medical leave, the fire department said.”
