Ex-FSU star Myron Rolle says COVID-19 cases take over his hospital
Myron role – The ex-star of the state of Florida, who left football to become a doctor – tells TMZ Sports His hospital is overtaken by COVID-19 cases … saying they are “fighting for bed space”.
Rolle, who left a promising NFL career to attend medical school in 2013, worked as a neurosurgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital … and tells us things are getting scary about coronavirus.
“We are currently fighting for bed space and staff to cope with the rise and influx of COVID-19 patients who are about to break the door,” says Rolle.
Rolle says things have gotten so bad … they have cleared all of the neurosurgical floor in his building and turned it into a “COVID-19 only” area.
“They tried to recruit neurosurgery and nursing residents to help with the wave,” Rolle said. “So it’s kind of an all-hands-on-deck deal right now.”
The most frightening thing about Rolle’s revelations is that Massachusetts only has 2,417 confirmed cases – nothing compared to what New York City has to do with nearly 40,000 cases.
But Rolle tells us that he wants to join efforts to help sick patients. He believes that it is only a matter of time before he is drawn to the front.
As for the sports world in the pandemic … Rolle says it wouldn’t surprise him if the leagues had to take an entire year off to stop the virus from spreading.
Incidentally, we asked Rolle about the decision he made to leave football for a medical profession … and he says he regrets choosing NULL – even in times like this.
“I would do it 10 times out of 10 again,” says Rolle.
