A Kentucky nurse is at the epicenter of the nation’s coronavirus outbreak. More than 15,000 patients in New York City alone are overwhelming hospitals and creating the need for more frontline workers.
Jataun Isenhower is a nurse at the Medical Center in Bowling Green. She left her job and family behind to work at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens for at least three weeks.
"We talked about the risk, and I said if I worked in Bowling Green, Louisville, or Nashville, I would be exposed to the same thing," Isenhower said in an interview with WKU Public Radio. "The difference is, I'd be bringing it home to you guys everyday, so this seemed like a better option for the family overall."
