  2. Must be really hard for the hospital to have to see this day after day.

  3. It’s hard watching this on video. Imagine how difficult it is for them caring for these dying patients. I highly respect these health workers and hope they stay healthy.

    You know, the computer screen resolution causes an afterburn in the brain. These zooms can’t be good for the HC workers.

    And a lot of this could have been avoided if travel was restricted

  10. Saw this same story April 2020.

  11. All people became mad…nobody help us, this the end my friend…

  12. It never had to be like this if they hadn’t of blocked hospitals from treating patients with ivermectin + zinc.

  13. So where are the new drugs that are available for the severely ill patients as this man?

    I’m afraid to get that second shot because I’m hearing too many tales about what people are going through what to do.

    I was force to get vaccinated by my primary physician regardless of my existing medical problems then I had severe allergic reaction from the vaccine – again he demanded to get the 2nd vaccine. According to CDC and Health Dept. Not to be vaccinated if severe reactions occur. Thank you God I didn’t I would have ended up in hospital (dead) to be exposed to C-19 from ER and Hospital staff.

  16. Perhaps Covid is Gods Judgement on the wickedness of society. There is no way to prove or disprove that. If so AMEN and glory to God Almighty

    I am wonder what kind of this disease 🦠 that originated from China 🇨🇳 claims premature deaths. It’s very scary and it reminds me the plague over hundred years that killed half of population of people in the world 🌎.
