From the Document: "New York City, with a population of over 8.3 million, has borne the brunt of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic in the U.S. As of June 19, 2020, there were nearly 210,000 confirmed cases, over 54,000 hospitalizations, and 17,546 confirmed deaths. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a flurry of information and stories with it, overwhelming news outlets and readers. In the information overload, first person experiences from the frontlines of the pandemic can get lost. This brief features stories from two individuals from Central New York who served on the frontline of the COVID-19 response in NYC: a SUNY Upstate Medical University nurse and a National Guardsman called to serve."
