Potential ‘Massive Wave’ of Cancer from Avoiding Routine Medical Care
A physician in Sacramento, California, said this
week the cancellation of regular medical care during the coronavirus
pandemic could yield a “massive wave” of cancer patients in the future.
In an interview with California Public Radio (CapRadio) Tuesday, Dignity Health thoracic surgeon Dr. Costanzo DiPerna said
even though Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced in late April that
hospitals and healthcare providers could resume some nonemergency
medical care, many patients are still not scheduling appointments.
