EPISODE FIVE: DR. CALVIN SUN
Dr. Calvin Sun is a New York City based emergency room doctor and owner of a travel company and blog, Monsoon Diaries. After a major international trip in early March, Dr. Sun arrived back to NYC for a shift in one of the several emergency rooms he works in and started treating the first wave of early covid19 patients. For the next few months, Dr. Sun and his colleagues worked tirelessly to contain the pandemic while the emergency rooms and hospitals in the city were bursting at the seams, all while having little access to new masks, gloves and face shields. Dr. Sun talks about what it was really like inside the hospitals while New York was under siege by the virus and how he managed his own mental health. He shares his experience returning to travel safely and what he wants us all to know about the healthcare heroes throughout the world fighting coronavirus.
