Our struggle against the coronavirus has many heroes: doctors, nurses, hospital housekeeping staff, bus drivers, police officers and others who are putting their own health at risk.
One of them is our nephew Jeffrey, a physician who lives in Colorado. Jeffrey came to Queens, N.Y. this month to spend three weeks in the overwhelmed Emergency Department of Jamaica Hospital, where ambulances were bringing in eighty to ninety suspected COVID-19 cases daily.
Jeff has gone to Haiti, Nepal, the Philippines, Houston (after the recent flooding) and more to help organizations like Heart to Heart and the International Medical Corps provide emergency medical services after disasters.
Our son Seth interviewed Jeff for his Amigo Gringo YouTube channel after one of Jeff’s twelve-hour shifts in the emergency room. You can watch the interview here.
