“In emergencies, our options are limited and our challenges heighted by the threat of the coronavirus threat. It’s already a serious risk to live in West Maui over an hour away from access to an Emergency Room for life saving acute care. It’s obvious that this new threat illustrates things are worse when pandemic healthcare threats present themselves,” the WMTA said.
