Fresno's doctor shortage just cost the county 100 coronavirus emergency hospital beds 
CALmatters- 2020/03/31(米国 カリフォルニア州)

Fresno County has to give away 100 emergency field hospital beds intended to treat coronavirus patients because the Valley's long-standing shortage of doctors means there aren't enough medical professionals to monitor the patients.
About 250 beds will be delivered to the county after state officials on Wednesday green light its proposed field hospital location for handling coronavirus patients. But due to a lack of physicians, the county plans to give away 50 other beds to an unspecified Northern California county and another 50 to an unspecified southern county, according to EMS coordinator Dan Lynch.

Coronavirus News: Pre-existing doctor shortages exacerbated by pandemic 
WABC-TV Thursday, April 2, 2020 9:09AM (米国 ニューヨーク州、ニュージャージー州)

As the coronavirus exhausts medical supplies and stretches thin available medical professionals, the 7 On Your Side Investigates data team analyzed records from the Health Resources and Services Administration tracking doctor shortages around the country.
HRSA compares the number of physicians to the population and considers other factors such as age and poverty levels to determine whether a geographic area has enough doctors to meet the potential need.

COVID-19 Is Making the Physician Shortage Worse, Groups Say 
MedPage Today-2020/03/27 (米国)

With the U.S. already facing a physician shortage, is the COVID-19 pandemic making things worse? Yes, according to Patrice Harris, MD, president of the American Medical Association (AMA). "I just heard a story this morning about a number of physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals becoming ill and infected, which puts them out of the workforce," Harris said in a phone interview at which a public relations person was present. "We certainly had a workforce challenge pre-pandemic, but it's exacerbated by COVID-19 disease."

The Problem with US Health Care Isn't a Shortage of Doctors  
Harvard Business Review-2020/03/16 (米国 マサチューセッツ州)

The coronavirus epidemic is increasing demands on health care's frontline, primary care physicians. Even before the outbreak emerged, conventional wisdom held that we're facing a PCP shortage. Quartz this July warned of a “devastating” doctor shortage poised to strike America. Later that month, the Washington Post chimed in with “America to face a shortage of primary care physicians within a decade or so.” Indeed, estimates from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) indicate that the U.S. could face a shortfall of between 21,000 and 55,000 primary care doctors by 2023. Add to this the spikes in demand from Covid-19 and any future epidemics, and the challenge might seem insurmountable.

ER doctor in New York details dire supply shortages from the front lines of the coronavirus fight 
CNN-2020/03/31 (米国)

When Dr. Calvin Sun gets back to his New York City apartment after a 12-hour shift treating critically ill coronavirus patients, he heads straight to the kitchen sink to wash his ski goggles and ski jacket.
He scrubs and wipes, then sprays them with Lysol before hanging them up to dry. The items are his personal protective equipment, or PPE -- improvised due to the severe shortage at hospitals across the city -- and he'll likely need to use them at work tomorrow.
As a per diem emergentologist who fills in shifts left empty by the increasing number of doctors calling out sick, Sun has the unique perspective of working in emergency rooms throughout the New York City area. Within the walls of each medical facility, he sees the same desperation.
