Covid-19 is a highly infectious virus that has drastically impacted healthcare systems across the world. This virus had such a unique makeup that modern-day medicine did not have an answer for it and the impact it’d have on the population as it rapidly swept across the planet. Due to the severity of this virus, effects can be seen regarding supply shortages, healthcare staff shortages, and everyday PPE requirements. Even by looking past the humanitarian effects caused by Covid-19, the financial burden on the healthcare systems cannot be ignored. Although this pandemic is generally viewed as a negative part of history, some positives did come from the ramifications of it including telemedicine and its rise to becoming a significant part of our future of healthcare. Though experts believe the Coronavirus is in a decline, the pandemic will have lasting effects throughout the healthcare systems for a long time.
