The phone conversation with Amy is short.

It has to be. She has COVID-19 and conversations more than a few minutes long leave her struggling to breathe. Even showering and brushing her teeth wears her out.

You can hear her voice quiver with discomfort as she discusses her situation and how she’s tried to make the best of it.

Amy is a Burnaby resident and registered nurse at St. Paul’s Hospital who was diagnosed with COVID-19 at the end of March and ended up in hospital herself for a few days. (We’ve agreed to not print her last name for privacy reasons.)
