I’m posting this a bit early and there may be additions later.
My wife works at the local hospital. She is not due back there until Monday but obviously keeps in touch with her friends from work. She works on the infectious diseases ward which is naturally all Coronavirus patients now.
They have run out of most of the correct PPE. The staff are having to buy visors, hair covers and masks from their own pockets. Yesterday “Infection Control” visited the ward and the staff were criticised for having the wrong PPE on!
Even worse is that when patients die they were having to double bag them as the virus stays on the body for 4 days. They have now run out of body bags! They had 6 deaths on the ward yesterday.
Don’t believe the crap they tell us on the news about the amount of PPE being sent out. It clearly is NOT enough.
