#YearofCOVID: A Cedars-Sinai Series
One year has passed since stay-at-home orders went into effect across the U.S. and the COVID-19 pandemic changed our lives in profound ways. The novel coronavirus has infected more than 100 million worldwide and killed more than 2.5 million, including more than 500,000 in the U.S alone. It has separated many from their loved ones and cost others their jobs, their homes and their life savings.
But in a dark year, we’ve also witnessed courageous patients and heroic healthcare workers battling the disease, as swift scientific breakthroughs have brought us vaccines and hope.
During March, the Cedars-Sinai Newsroom team is marking this one-year pandemic milestone with a series reflecting on the past 12 months as experienced by our patients, healthcare workers, researchers and community. Follow and join the conversation on social media @CedarsSinai.
