Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Inside a night at a London ICU overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients” – below is their description.
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Royal Hospital in London, UK has been overwhelmed with the number of COVID-19 patients admitted.
Medical staff are feeling the burden as they try to balance taking care of newly admitted patients and delivering the sad news to families losing their loves ones to COVID-19.
Nurse Carleen Kelly says she’s “felt broken on many occasions” just like a lot of her colleagues have.
Martin Freeborn said minutes after he lost his wife at the ICU that it makes him feel angry some people aren’t taking the pandemic seriously.
“Please wake up and please be over-careful, you can’t do enough to keep yourself safe. Don’t end up like us. Please.” He said.
Britain, which is in its third national lockdown to try and suppress the virus and ease the burden on the National Health Service (NHS), has the world’s fifth worst official death toll from COVID-19, with over 81,000 fatalities.
