Set aside death from COVID for a second. We have no effective medicine to prevent hospitalization from COVID.

If beds are full, people with other medical problems suffer, and delay due to fear. This kind of administrative choice will be killing people without COVID for years.
Every day as an oncologist is thinking about the value of human life, not at any cost but as a thoughtful exchange with other meaningful life experiences and medical reality. It is hard to watch this kind of terrible logic acted on and nationally broadcast without speaking out.
This approach to public health is wrong and illogical. Period.
