Moral Dilemma of a Physician and Mother in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Authors: Sarah Rosanel, MD, Joshua Fogel ,PhD


I am a physician, a cardiology fellow, and a mother of three in the midst of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic at its epicenter in New York City. A lot of people ask me these three questions: How does it feel to be on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic? How can you witness people dying every day and go back to work? How can you go back to work with the risk of your becoming infected and also potentially infecting your husband and your three young children?
