Intensive care physicians at the Royal Liverpool Hospital in the UK have made a desperate appeal to the public to get vaccinated as about 80% of non-vaccinated survivors are in intensive care.
The video, shared by the Liverpool Assembly, shows the current struggle of health professionals in the intensive care unit, who are tired and fear that the new variant will further overload the British health service.
Peter Hampshire, director of intensive care, said: “It’s shocking to see healthy young people in their 30s and 40s coming to the hospital.
Another professional, Crazy Philip, slipped into the video when told how patients are and their health is deteriorating in the group’s view. “I have been a nurse for 25 years and I have never seen anything like this in my life,” she says.
“I have seen patients coming, they are in good condition, they are in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and they are getting worse and worse. If they had been vaccinated, I’m sure they would not have been like this,” he assured.
It should be noted that for the first time this Wednesday the number of daily cases exceeded 100,000. There are 106,122 new infections, the highest daily number ever recorded in the country.
In the UK, 8,000 people are currently hospitalized and 849 are in critical condition.
