NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A Brooklyn nurse who was on the frontlines of New York City's coronavirus battle has been named one of TIME Magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2020.

Amy O'Sullivan is an 18-year veteran emergency room nurse at Wyckoff Hospital. 

O'Sullivan treated the hospital's first COVID-19 patient, who later became New York City's first coronavirus death.

"The first COVID patient in Brooklyn, she was my patient," O'Sullivan told TIME.
