As COVID-19 cases sweep the globe, doctors have mobilized for the unprecedented healthcare crisis, often lacking proper resources, facing wartime-triage situations, and dealing with their own emotions.

We talked to hospital doctors in several coronavirus hotspots — the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Belgium, and South Korea — to hear what it’s like for them as they treat patients and what they’re learning about the virus. They shared a range of experiences, but one key message kept coming through, one thing they want us all to know: The lockdown measures are working, so continue social-distancing and washing your hands.
