    Sadly this was an utterly predictable outcome. The H1-b program was the main way we get enough physicians into the country to meet demand because there just aren't enough residency slots available to train them all domestically.

    This also means older doctors, who are more at risk, are going to be working more and be even less able to rest, making them more prone to infection and more likely to have worse responses to infection. It's a disaster all around.
