Wider Image: A day fighting the coronavirus: US hospital staff share hardest moments on shift
Kaitlyn Martiniano, 25, a registered nurse who works at a biocontainment unit with COVID-19 patients, poses for a photograph after a 12.5-hour shift, outside the hospital where she works, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, Maryland, U.S., April 12, 2020. "We have a lot of patients and they are pretty sick right now but we have not yet been hit as hard as New York or Seattle, so I feel like we are very lucky with that so far. Every day you have to just be optimistic." Said Martiniano. "I think the reason that we are not being hit as hard right now is because so many things are closed, and because so many people are staying at home."
