A Day in the COVID ICU

Since 1837, our caregivers have protected the people of Greater Cleveland against one public health threat after another: cholera, polio, tuberculosis, HIV and now COVID-19. We recently followed some of those caregivers – Dr. Vidya Krishnan, along with two residents and a fellow – on the frontlines of our COVID-19 intensive care unit.
