A group of South Florida doctors walked out of their hospital on Monday to protest the surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations among the unvaccinated.
The doctors walked out just before sunrise in an effort to encourage residents to get the COVID-19 vaccine, saying they are fatigued from working so hard during the latest surge.
“We are exhausted. Our patience and resources are running low and we need your help,” Dr. Rupesh Dharia from Palm Beach Internal Medicine told NBC 8.
The outbreak in Florida, mainly consisting of the more infectious Delta variant, has become one of the worst in the nation.
