I volunteer as an EMT in out in Virginia and, Anytime that we get a call to deal with someone who might be experiencing COVID symptoms, that puts us out of service for someone who could be experiencing an overdose. So it's a question of resource allocation.

A lot of people have lost their jobs due to the pandemic. And, in this country, a lot of people get their health insurance through their jobs. So all of a sudden they don't have access to lifesaving treatment, mental health treatment or access to different recovery support services that are necessary to help sustain long-term recovery.
