Doctor Shares “A Day In The Life Of An ER Doc” On Twitter And It’s Truly Eye-Opening


Doctor Shares “A Day In The Life Of An ER Doc” On Twitter And It’s Truly Eye-Opening

Let’s stay at home so we can get through this quicker.

All commoners like us who don’t work in hospitals can see are empty streets and closed stores. We’ve probably been glued to the screen for hours on because there are just nothing we can do. But even as you’re reading this article, craddling your baby or playing Animal Crossing, elsewhere in the world doctors are taking long shifts to help Covid-19 patients.

Everyday, hospitals run out of space and can barely provide care for everyone that was admitted in. Without test, everyone comes in with the same symptom and diagnosis was made on the spot: shortness of breath, fever, coughing.

So, this ER doctor decided to create a Twitter thread that shares what his work looks like now.


The 38-year-old witness personally how some people still suffer from the symptoms even at maximum effort. And this happens day by day as they fight to keep people alive while requesting that everyone else who are fine or experience no heavy symptoms to self-isolate at home.

Former President Barrack Obama praises the courage and also sacrifices doctors and other healthcare workers have given.


Another Twitter user tried to get hospitals to show what it’s like in the ER.


And the next day, a woman who works in the ER shared a footage with New York Times, revealing how bad the situation is.

Before we show the footage, we’d really like that anyone who may have anxiety issues to not push themselves by watching this. Yes, the situation is bad, yes, people are dying and yes, more people will be admitted into the hospital for at least a few days to come. The best thing we can do right now is to stay home, encourage our family members to do the same, and learn to cope with the new situation where we’re home-bound.

“Unless people die… we need to beg for more (ventilators) in another day or two.”

We can never thank enough for those who’ve done so much on the frontline and are about to do even more in the future.
