Healthcare Workers On Frontlines Of Pandemic, Dr. Remington Says
Healthcare workers are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19.
“They are a precious resource. I can tell you … last week we had our first case and we talked about some conceptual things. But there’s an emotive piece today as a healthcare worker. I can tell you the healthcare worker environment is feeling this. Support them. Encourage them. Figure out creative ways to do that. They are feeling vulnerable. They are stepping up. They are Marines willing to step into the battle. Their professionalism is noteworthy, it really is,” Dr. William Remington, Kosciusko County public health officer, said during a press conference Wednesday.
He had two major points to make during his update on the coronavirus and how it’s all playing out in the county. The first was “be respectful of the healthcare worker who’s increasingly going to need your support,” and the second was, “don’t take your foot off the gas with social distancing, staying home as much as you can.”
Remington said the Kosciusko County Health Department just learned of the fifth confirmed COVID-19 case in the county Wednesday morning. “We had been inadvertently reported with another county’s case, that’s why the state’s map with the COVID-19 dashboard had five for us (Tuesday),” he explained.
The county has no deaths.
