Default Anxious

OK, now i'm seriously anxious.
just realized how weak my application packet is:
have one lor from a pediatrician in home country recommending me for a program that is not pediatrics. at the time i thought that since she can vouch for my clinical skills, i should be fine.
the lor from my school faculty member was not uploaded coz of a virus, just realized that now. i thought the delay was due to ecfmg
one lor is from a US based dr that i have not worked with, he is more like a mentor. so he cannot vouch for my clinical skills. should i use that?
the 4th is from the US based lady dr i did observership with in her private clinic
should i wait for the virus one to be re-done? it may take another 2 weeks to get to my eras.
my scores are decent, gc holder. should i apply today or wait
so you see i feel like i have 0 LOR, no lor from chair of faculty of medical school either.

any advise will be deeply appreciated
