In a usual April, we would normally see around 30,000 people diagnosed with cancer. I would be surprised if that number reaches 5,000 this month.
People with other illnesses are in the same situation. I know somebody who is a physical therapist who got fired last week because there are no patients. People are afraid to go to the hospital to get physical therapy because they were led to believe that hospitals are filled with coronavirus patients. That’s not true but everybody believes the fantasy scenarios from early March and all these lies about people buried in mass graves in New York.
Of course, physical therapy is not the same as cancer but if you need it and don’t get it, your quality of life is down the drain.
