These 9 stories of New York nurses feel so close and so far（6）
2021-The New York Times interviewed nine New York University Medical Center nurses who were on the front line of the epidemic, and recorded their work, hopes and waiting.
Jessica Rini, 26 years old, hospital nurse
I have been working on the front line of the anti-epidemic since the first day, and that was also the first day I ended my vacation and returned to work. This is a virus that we have never encountered before, so everything seems very difficult. When you are a novice nurse, every time you encounter a new challenge, you will feel scared. As you keep repeating these tasks, you will find a rhythm and slowly understand, "Well, it's just pneumonia. I have seen this situation, and I can handle it."

However, now that the new crown pneumonia epidemic has suddenly broken out, we don't know what virus it is. So from a paramedic's point of view, this is a bit scary, because every day when you start working, you are faced with different treatment options. You have to work hard to adapt to these changes and do your best to take care of your patients.
What would happen if the medical staff were sick? If a medical worker falls ill due to lack of protective equipment, who will take care of the patient? I don't think our country will lack protective materials. Whenever you see pictures of nurses working in other countries, they wear a full set of protective equipment in front of the camera, but you will hear stories about nurses having to wear garbage bags to protect themselves. I think this is too ironic.
"Every day when you start working
are faced with different diagnosis and treatment plans"
