Further proving how dangerously inaccurate #TheGoodDoctor and #LawAndOrderSVU writing staff are." Another added, "I believe #TheResident deserves a standing ovation for the way they handled the coronavirus portrayal and showing appreciation for all frontline workers while showing storylines after covid in the future @aholdenj @ResidentFOX @TheManishDayal @EmilyVanCamp @shauneywood". Even real life frontline workers were in awe, with one writing, "@ResidentFOX as a nurse and a survivor of COVID-19, this episode brought much sorrow. It was truly spot on and I applaud the cast on their performance. #TheResident"
