COVID-19 continues to be the biggest factor in life.

In six months, the stress it has put on doctors and front-line health care workers is evident. Jane Roberts talked to local doctors about what has become a marathon of grinding work.

They discuss the early days of the pandemic, when not much was known about the novel coronavirus and they expected many of the nurses and other providers to contract COVID-19; of not having enough personal protective equipment; of the anxiety of getting overwhelmed with sick patients; the stress of not having many treatment options other than respirators.

And the responsibility, one doctor says, of knowing you almost become the family member of some ICU patients because their real family can’t visit.

This and the week of business news are below. – Terry Hollahan, Daily Memphian business editor
