ABC News: Expert Says Illness Severity Is Virus Dose-Dependent as Doctors, Nurses Are Contracting Coronavirus at Alarming Rate

At least 140 employees at one hospital alone, Brigham and Women’s in Boston, tested positive for coronavirus as workers around the country work tirelessly to help COVID-19 patients.

Dr. Joshua D. Raninowitz, M.D., Ph.D told ABC News, “When you get exposed to the virus, your immune system immediately starts mounting a response. At the same time the virus starts spreading within the body. An outcome depends on which wins the race, viral spread? or the immune response? When you start with a high dose of virus, it gives it a head start in the race.” Dr Rabinowitz was the NIH Pioneer Award recipient in 2016 and is a researcher and professor at Princeton University (scholar.princeton.edu/rabinowitz).

Dr. Frank Gabrin, age 60, the first ER doctor to die from COVID-19 in the United States, knew that he caught Coronavirus COVID-19 disease while working four shifts with the same mask, according to his friend, Dr. Debra Vaselech Lyons.

Nate, a nurse in New Orleans, said disposable isolation gowns were in short supply, and it was necessary to use the mask for several shifts.
