(Reuters) - A doctor at a New York City hospital had to make a difficult decision last weekend to send his wife and 17-month-old daughter away while he remained on the front lines of the U.S. coronavirus crisis.

"I don't know how long it's gonna be. But this morning when I left the house, I said goodbye to my wife and my daughter for who knows how long, it's going to be several weeks probably, before I see them in person again," said Dr. Matthew Bai, who made a video recording in his car before his shift started on Monday.
