To the Government of the United States of America. Writing as a physician in New York City, I want to thank the House, the Senate, and the Executive branch for their recent passing of a 2 trillion dollar bill aimed at protecting the economy. I would also like to impress on the three branches of government that this money will go completely to waste unless they make more efforts to sure up New York City’s healthcare. All the hospitals in New York City are already beyond capacity. We are now counting deaths due solely for lack of resources. That includes healthcare workers without masks. Unfortunately, we don’t just need money; we need ventilators, we need masks, we need gowns. Period.
