A COVID-19 Survivor Spent Months Tracking Down the 116 Health Care Workers Who Saved his Life

When he awoke from a month-long coma, one of Jeff Gerson's first thoughts was that he wanted to thank the people who saved his life. Gerson, a 45-year-old from Manhattan, arrived at NYU Langone Tisch Hospital on March 18 with shortness of breath, an uncontrollable cough, and a 103-degree fever. A day later, he was diagnosed with Covid-19 and put on a ventilator. Gerson spent five months trying to track down every medical professional who helped him recover. The list was 116 people long, he said. But he got it done! #thankyoufrontlineworkers
