Letter: Reality in the time of COVID-19

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Shereyah Barbera, Annice Sterling, and Magdelena Litwinczuk, ICU nurses from Northwell Health will support ICU teams at Intermountain Healthcare in Utah, at a news conference in Murray on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2020. Last April, Intermountain deployed two COVID-19 Response Teams totaling 100 caregivers to assist New York City-area hospitals during that state’s major surge of COVID-19 cases. Those hospitals planned to return the favor when their surge subsided, which it now has.

What is this talk of rationing care? Call it what it really is — triage.

Maybe more will understand if we disambiguate.

COVID is real. Ask my ICU nurse wife.
