Metro DC area's burn center sees spike in visits since quarantine began
Since the pandemic hit, the number of people going to the D.C. region’s burn center is up dramatically, and cases are more serious than usual, the center’s director said. “We’ve had nearly 60 to 70% of more volume than we normally have during this time of the year,” said Dr. Jeffrey Shupp, director of the Burn Center at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The Burn Center at MedStar Washington Hospital Center serves D.C., Southern Maryland, Northern Virginia and eastern West Virginia.
