Dozens of state, local health officials fired or resignedDozens of state and local public health leaders have been fired or resigned during the coronavirus pandemic, according to an analysis from the Associated Press and the Kaiser Health News Service reported on Monday.

Multiple health experts left office after being fiercely criticized, threatened with violence and in some cases simply experiencing burnout after the whirlwind past few months, the AP reported.

The analysis found that across 23 states, at least 49 state and local public health leaders have resigned, retired or been fired since April, when the U.S. outbreak kicked into high gear, including more than 20 since June.
