Exhausted hospital staff in a Texas Covid-19 ward

Description

AFPTV spends the day in a Covid-19 ward at a hospital in Houston, Texas, to see first hand the impact of the virus on patients and medical staff. Dr Joseph Varon has worked 264 days straight as he battles the disease that has killed more than 278,000 people in the US. "The coronavirus doesn’t just kill a person, it tears families apart," says Varon, who made headlines when a photo of him hugging an elderly Covid patient on Thanksgiving went viral.

    At least five Los Angeles County hospitals had to turn patients away on Sunday, citing an 'internal disaster.' In the week before Christmas, the state averaged more than 40,000 new coronavirus infections every day. CNN reports that at some area hospitals, aging infrastructure was unable to keep up with the high number of patients needing oxygen. The issue was not the lack of oxygen itself--rather, the buildings were unable to maintain the necessary pressure to deliver the oxygen.
