Brooklyn Doctor Who Put Off Retirement to Fight Coronavirus Dies From COVID-19

He was transferred to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

Dr. Robert F. Foronjy, Mahoney's boss, said the doctor acted fearlessly during his time treating COVID-19 patients, rushing into rooms as monitors sounded off, alerting him a patient was crashing. From the time he took himself to the hospital's emergency room, suffering from shortness of breath, he was treated by his colleagues in the same hospital where he had worked and studied since 1982.

Like numerous clinical centres in the United States, and also specifically NY, the University Hospital of Brooklyn had a scarcity of individual safety devices (PPE) at the beginning of the episode. He ended up becoming a pulmonary and critical care physician and professor at the same facility.

A former student of Mahoney's, Latif Salam said, "As a young Black man, I looked at this guy and said to myself, 'Twenty years from now I want to be like him'".

Dr. Mahoney joins a growing list of Black medical professionals who have succumbed to the virus.

The hospital served a predominantly black group, and Mr. Mahoney was an inspiration to African American college students, based on the Occasions. "He's our Jay-Z". But he knew that his younger brother would face COVID-19 with the same tenacity that he faced other events which directly impacted New Yorkers in large numbers, including the AIDS and crack epidemic, the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and Hurricane Sandy. "He gave his life for that hospital", said Mahoney's brother Melvin, when speaking to the Washington Post.

While it intends to start bringing some workers back to its offices in July, it will limit occupancy to 25% of normal capacity. The shift could help remake the United States job market in tech, as Facebook now has more than 40,000 employees.

"Not only did he heal people's bodies, he healed their minds and their souls", Michelle King, Mahoney's office assistant, told the Times.

There, they admitted him and put him on oxygen to help his breathing.

The doctor died with his closest colleagues, who were his second family, at his side.

"I got to visit him, hold his hand", Mr Foronjy claimed. We hope you love us on YouTube as much as you do on television!

Dr. Mahoney leaves behind three children and his ex-wife, along with all of his colleagues who loved him so dearly. "We said a lot of things that week that needed to be said".
