Coronavirus outbreak: British healthcare workers on being in the front lines of COVID-19 fight
Medical workers in the intensive care unit in London’s University College Hospital continue to cope with the onslaught of critically ill coronavirus patients, with a doctor saying that although they currently have enough staff and oxygen, more ventilators were urgently needed.
The hospital’s post-surgery recovery area has been turned into an additional intensive care unit to cope with demand. Most patients being admitted to the hospital are either confirmed as having COVID-19 or suspected of being infected.
Britain’s confirmed death toll reached 7,097 on Wednesday, an increase of 938 from 24 hours earlier.
