Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York has called for a draft of doctors, including private surgeons, podiatrists and dermatologists. Hospitals are even redeploying workers with threats of furlough without pay if not obeyed.

We have doctors willing to help, but mandatory conscription is not the answer.”
