China’s COVID wave, hospitals are overflowing

Canada Global (Web News) A staff member in full protective gear exclaimed, “Deceased, deceased,” as she handed a death certificate to a nurse at their COVID-infested hospital in central China.

About a dozen beds, mostly occupied by elderly people receiving IV drips, were blocked off in the spacious atrium. The tape was red and white.

They all have COVID, a nurse claimed.

Three patients were connected to respirators and heart monitors in an adjacent intensive care unit.

An elderly man on a stretcher was wheeled in, coughing and struggling to breathe.

Around 50 people waited for triage at the emergency department, including COVID patients, with one person at the front of the line telling AFP they had waited more than an hour.

Another medium-sized hospital in downtown Chongqing’s emergency room was also overcrowded, with around 30 elderly people attached to IV drips squeezed among beds and chairs.

Several were wearing respirators and had pulse oximeters strapped to their fingers.
