Thousands of people in New York have been infected with the coronavirus, and medical workers on the frontlines are sacrificing their own health to help patients and save lives.

“We are not getting tested. We are told, even with a known exposure, that we are to continue to come to work, and if we develop symptoms, then put on a mask and report it,” Ciampa tells Dr. Phil on Monday’s episode. “We are looking to the government to be laser-focused on the epicenters and send any and every resource available to us today. We have to be ahead of the virus, and currently, we’re behind the virus.”
