Global News published this video item, entitled “Saskatchewan’s top doctor breaks down while presenting latest COVID-19 modelling data” – below is their description.

During a technical briefing regarding COVID-19 in Saskatchewan on Wednesday, chief medical health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab got emotional.

Shahab was presenting modelling that shows Saskatchewan’s health care system is struggling under the demands of treating COVID-19.

He was in the middle of speaking about how individuals can take action when he started to cry.

“I have no shame in pleading to the public that we’ve gone so far and we just have to pull along for the next few weeks or months. It’s distressing to see what is happening in our ICUs and hospitals,” Shahab said, fighting back tears.
