Covid doctor hasn’t had a day off in a year- ‘I’m calling the Guinness Book of Records!’
Dr Joseph Varon, 58, has worked a whole year battling to save lives on the frontline. The self-proclaimed ‘Covid-ologist’ says he simply has not had time to stop as chief of staff at the United Memorial Medical Center (UMCC) in Houston, Texas.
Dr Varon said: “I am proud, but I am truly exhausted. Physically and emotionally exhausted.
“It’s been a battle every single day. It is like a never-ending story. People ask ‘how are you?’, but I have no idea!”
Dr Varon is functioning on just a few hours sleep a night, returning home from a shift at 11pm and waking up again at 5am.
Dr Varon continued: “If I were to turn off all my phones I don’t think I could sleep more than three hours.
