Are you recording this? No, no, that's fine. When we're done, you're going to let me go right? That was the deal. Anyway, my name is Sharona Diaz, and I am... I was a Nurse Practitioner at Bellevue. The hospital. Worked there for sixteen years, so I've seen all kinds of bad stuff, but nothing like this. Okay, I'm sorry. The first cases we got? Early December, the night of the fifth. They started coming in, just a couple at first. Symptoms they presented looked like flu, and that's what we thought it all was. I mean, we knew it was going to be a bad season, and that's what we thought this was. So we gave them fluids and sent them home, like you do. I mean, how were we supposed to know?
