    • Society & Culture

Laura Smith is a registered nurse and assistant nurse manager at a busy emergency room in Orlando, Florida. Today she shares her experiences treating patients of the Delta variant of COVID, which she says are, by and large, younger than those hospitalized from the first variant.

We talk:

* Is the Delta variant "that bad?"

* The symptoms and biggest challenges of this strain

* Stories of patients she's treated

* Delta hitting younger and typically healthier patients

* What it's like witnessing people's health deteriorate

* Just how busy ER's are in the area and why she urges people to get vaccinated
