How one health emergency has emptied the ER

What happens to other emergencies during a pandemic? US hospitals’ ER’s have seen a drastic drop-off in patients since coronavirus cases emerged.


In some ways, this seems reasonable – there are, for instance, less people driving, so there will be less car accidents. But the rate of conditions like strokes and heart attacks shouldn’t significantly change, nor should essential follow-up care.
