EMTs Are Leaving Their Jobs In Alarming Numbers Due To The Pandemic

For many emergency medical technicians, working through the Covid-19 pandemic simply isn’t worth it.

An alarming number of these frontline workers are “exiting the field for good” amidst the pandemic, according to a new report from CBS. The reason is obvious: Covid-19 simply makes the job too dangerous.

Robert Baer, an EMT in New York City who was formerly one of the first responders on September 11, told CBS: “I knew it would probably kill me if I went out there and had multiple exposures — and I’m not a chicken. I love the job, but my doctors were telling me I shouldn’t be going in the field, that it was very dangerous.”
