The coronavirus wave, driven by the omicron variant, seems to finally be peaking in New York, but experts are warning about the situation in hospitals, where an exhausted workforce is still having to deal with an influx of new patients. One of the ER doctors sounding the alarm is Dr. Craig Spencer, who has been on the frontlines of the pandemic since the very beginning. He joined Errol to share his takeaways from the latest surge and explain the many lessons yet to be learned from the pandemic. Dr. Spencer, who is the director of global health in emergency medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, also shared his experience treating Ebola patients in West Africa and testing positive for the virus after coming back to the city in 2014.
