Exhausted, overworked and scared — that nearly sums up life currently for America's health care workers on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19.

Elyse Isopo, a nurse at Long Island's North Shore University Hospital, talked to Inside Edition about a typical day in her life and the toll the virus is taking on her well-being.

On her sixth 13-hour day in one week, Isopo was exhausted.

"It's tiring and takes a toll," she said. "People are getting sicker. There are more people coming in and the curve continues to rise."
