A medical ethics experts team said that frontline medical personnel should be the ones who get emergency health care resources first

The novel Coronavirus has been truly a trouble maker and an intangible enemy of humankind. The virus which originated from Wuhan, China has led the world to a public health crisis. The number of infectious cases has skyrocketed in a short span of time with more than 1.6 million patients, the death tolls climbed to nearly 97,000. The USA has been the epicenter of the pandemic with around 470,000 confirmed cases. Needless to say, hospitals, especially in New York where registers the highest number of COVID-19 victims are always overloaded.

The ongoing pandemic has added one more important duty to the head of New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, which is the biggest public healthcare system of the nation, Dr. Mitchell Katz.

Before going to the bed after a long marathon day, he always makes sure all 11 care hospitals that he is overseeing have enough ventilators to support the critically ill nCoV patients to breathe.

However, the situation is getting more intense as New York is facing ventilator scarcity.

Earlier, Dr. Lorenzo Paladino along with two more doctors at the Brooklyn hospital had a meeting with FEMA officials to come up with a protocol on increasing the capacity of the existing ventilators. They suggested the technique to share ventilators but they also said that it’s just a temporary solution and isn’t suitable for a long-term cure-all.

Meanwhile, in an interaction with media, Cuomo talked about the level of seriousness on the ventilator shortage can lead to the death of a person.

The research scholar at the bioethics center, The Hastings Center, Nancy Berlinger, also opened up on who will get priority for ventilators or other critical equipment. She said that in case they, unfortunately, have more patients than the existing health care resources, allocating resources fairly should be done.

On the other hand, a medical ethics experts team said that frontline medical personnel should be the ones who get emergency health care resources first. And other patients having similar prognoses should receive emergency resources via random selection.
