To the editor:

If you watched the videos from China of people treating the victims of the COVID-19 virus, you saw them dressed in white suits enclosing their whole bodies. Your doctor’s office cannot put their entire staff in these suits in case someone walks in with the virus. They cannot treat their regular patients in these suits.

This was made known to me when I got an email from my doctor’s office. It said do not come in if you think you have this virus without calling first, letting them know you might be infected and getting an appointment. They have to isolate you from the other patients and have staff dressed so you do not pass on the virus to them.

This same advice should be given by our hospitals, state officials and spread by the media. If you see tents outside the hospital, it will be to keep those with the virus away from all the other sick patients as well as the hospital staff.
