A New Hampshire doctor who traveled to New York City to volunteer for 10 days at a hospital overrun by coronavirus patients was kicked out of his brother’s empty apartment because the Manhattan co-op was afraid he was carrying the virus.
Richard Levitan, 58, an intubation pioneer who invented an ‘airway cam’ used in performing laryngoscopies, was born in New York City and worked at Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital before eventually practicing in Philadelphia and New Hampshire.
The article goes on to state the following:
Levitan answered the call for medical volunteers put out by Governor Andrew Cuomo, who pleaded for help as the state’s hospitals became overwhelmed with patients infected with COVID-19.
At the end of seven hours in mask, gown and gloves at Bellevue Hospital Center on Monday, Dr. Richard Levitan finally had a chance to look at his phone,” the New York Times reports. “A text had arrived from his older brother, who was letting him use an apartment on the Upper West Side. It read: ‘Hey Richard — We are so proud of you and your heroism. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but looks like our apartment building doesn’t want you staying in our apt.’ The building’s board of directors wanted him out.”
According to the Times, the board heard about his work at the hospital and did not want him in the building.
The Times says the type of treatment Levitan recieved “is rampant and emerges in many shapes” in the state as residents worry about becoming infected by each other.
