As the situation with Covid-19 continues to spread and the upsurge in cases is steadily increasing across the world, the roll out of vaccinations brings hope for an end in sight. However, health care experts warn the situation will only get worse over the next few weeks and many dread the consequences of Thanksgiving gatherings on the upcoming holiday season. In April 2020, we checked in with a group of Emergency Medicine clinicians about the situation back then. It’s time to hear from them again and talk about how the ED departments are coping with the current situation and how are doing in terms of their own stress and workload. What challenges are they up against and what are their thoughts around the near future?
