Moral fatigue

‘The morning you die, I don’t want to be there - like most mornings now, when I rise against my whole will and crawl dejectedly into scrubs. I don’t want to be a plague doctor or a hero on TV. Now on the news, white men hold guns and signs that say “Live free or die” to protest the lockdown. I imagine what they will look like dying on vents in ICUs staffed by doctors lacking sleep and proper training, soaked in moral fatigue.’ Anna DeForest, M.D.
