What was it like for a frontline critical care pulmonologist at the very beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic? On the frontlines as the epidemic became pandemic? What’s it like today, with new variants and new in-patient and out-patient treatments? What are the key differences between then and now, what have we learned, and how can we be better prepared for next time?
