My son, John Tang '11, is currently a fourth year anesthesiology resident at Mt. Sinai Hospital, in New York City, right at the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic in America. At the beginning of March, in response to the epidemic, his anesthesia group was engaged in the treatment of seriously ill COVID-19 patients. He was responsible for intubating those that required ventilator assistance in breathing. He was assigned to be on one of many COVID wards that were set up at Mt. Sinai Hospital to take care of COVID patients. He did this for several weeks until the patient load was lessened, and they were transferred out of the COVID wards into other parts of the hospital.
