‘Brace Yourself’: Doctors in Italy Share Coronavirus Advice | NYT News


“And this is really
the eye of the cyclone.” “A nightmare. A nightmare.” “Lombardy for sure is one
of the most advanced regions in Italy in terms of health care.” “38-year-old with severe
respiratory distress. And immediately, in the
next two, three hours we see 10, 8, 9
patients exactly with the same
clinical presentation.” “Every single square meter
is occupied by beds, every single aisle is
filled up by beds. And you can hardly recognize
where you normally work.” “The gastroenterology
ward is not there anymore. Internal medicine
is not there. Neurology has been replaced. Doctors from other
specialties have been called to do shifts.” “We had seven I.C.U. beds and now we have 24.” “As many as 5 to 10 percent
of the severe cases and of deaths are actually among the
health care personnel.” “We forget to eat, we forget to drink, and we keep on working.” “I’m far away from my
family since Feb. 19.” “The worst is somebody dying
in the isolated ward asking for the wife, the husband for
the last hours of their life and having no chance
to have anybody around and dying on their own.” “So the problem is that now we
don’t have any intensive care beds anymore. We have to intubate,
put on a helicopter and transfer to
another region, actually, because in the region all
the intensive cares are full.” “Prepare more
intensive care beds, get more devices for
mechanical ventilation. Do the swab to everybody
within the hospital and be aware that somebody
will not make it anyway.” “We try to give our best
to win not only the battle, but win the war, finally.”

  1. The New York Times is providing free access to the most up-to-date information and guidance on the coronavirus at nytimes.com/coronavirus. Register with your email address to gain access.

  2. Wuhan had show exactly the same situation months ago. That's why china summoned 60 thousands medics from the whole nation to assist and set 20 thousands more beds in wuhan. Until today, wuhan still have more than 1 thousands patients in critical condition. China has already shifted the focus onto the international airlines. Singapore, south Korea had taken our reports seriously and they succeed in containing the virus. However some people especially in us still ignore the facts and science and misled the others.

  3. It's shocking how the world has changed so drastically in a couple of weeks. A lot of people don't believe it or want to pretend it's not happening. I overheard a woman complaining the store was out of parsley. I thought to myself, be glad you have food. Society is spoiled and is getting a rude awakening. I know no one wants to die by suffocating with tubes shoved down their throat. This situation is extremely scary and sad.

  4. We are at a time now that ppl really need to see the bigger picture. How many more lives have to be destroyed by this virus before ppl sit at home like instructed instead of going on spring break and trips that can be put on hold? The person you are going with or yourself can end up infected and then your life could be cut short. I'd like to see everyone in all these countries recovering. Start doing like south korea please. Lets start making a comeback in health. Save the lives we have left fighting to live another day. Let our health professionals decrease these cases and get back to their families

  5. This virus is blown WAY out of proportion. The elderly are the ones at risk, just like every other year of influenza. CDC reports 30,000-60,000 deaths a year from influenza since 2010. This is fear mongering from democratic owned news outlets, period! Italy is 40% elderly. Do the math,this is no different than any other flu year . It doesn't mean its not terrible for anyone but it certainly not new.

  6. How would we know if these doctors arent getting paid to do this… we live in a corrupted world hungry for money and power. Trust no one.

  7. We have got to do something about this….we can not, as the world, sit back and allow smoking hot Italian doctors and nurses to die from this virus.

  8. Science Committee later revealed the name of the drug as Favipiravir.

  9. Wake up China lied 🤥 they had over 80,000 deaths and 500,000 infected. Crematoriums don’t lie ! Running 24/7 from dec-feb 2,000 plus with just 18 crematoriums

  11. Huge respect to every health care professional in Italy and everywhere in the world who are risking their lives in this epidemic…Let's hope that the situation gets in control
    Prayers to all those who have been affected

  12. The elites have been planning to switch the whole system into digital money for a long time. Many have said there is a coming crash this summer. And you will see a huge transfer of wealth (to the bankers/elites), people will lose jobs, people's assets wiped out also. But this time they don't want you to blame the bankers, they want you to blame a virus and China, so that's why it was engineered (also agenda 21).  See Cryptoviewing youtube videos. They have been posting videos about a virus relating to the coming finance switch since 2017. They also want to wipe out US debts. Because of failed economic policies, US owes astronomical debts that they can never pay back. It's all happening very soon. PS. Don't put digital money in the banks. Research! Knowledge is power.

  13. "We have to take care of the cure, that will make the problem worse no matter what." – Joe Biden. .. words of wisdom. That's the real leadership the world needs…… lol

Congratulations to all doctors and nurses and all health-care workers , you did a fabulous job eradicating the virus. Italy can now sleep in peace. You are so wonderful !! Other countries will use you as an example of grit and fortitude.

  25. In my state we just got a new case. Infected after attending a Corona virus party….
    At a party 1 infected means there are now other idiots out there going on with their lives infecting others now. And Trump is to blame

  26. I'm going over to Fix need and posting this link I'm tired. And don't care watch me!! This is disgusting behavior he cant promote unity and right now there should be ONE PARTY and we need that to be Humanity

  27. I strongly believe covid-19 is a bio weapon.this bat soup nonsense need to stop. Either it was accidentally released or someone sabotaged it by internationally realising it.

  28. And I'm here waiting for Americans to be tested ,70%of their people acting like it's a normal day ,clocks ticking 🤐 beware

  29. Sorry for late Who Human read 5 times Namaz/Salah with wudu corona virus never come with him lnshaALLAH.with guarantee l m praying.

  30. Fear rules everyone on here commenting with no skepticism towards what they are being told. It's important to take this seriously, I get it…but you people 100 percent believe what you're told. Listen to the music they choose to use. This is manipulation by media. What's sad…most of you are completely willing to believe all of it. If the world breaks…it will be because the majority (you) takes this exactly the way it's being presented.

  31. Stay at home. If you need to go out, wear a mask and limit your exposure. Mortality rate is 5%. That's 1 in 20 people die if you get infected.

  32. All these doctors and nurses are heroes! 🙌🏼 People need to take this seriously. I fear that the U.S. is going to be a nightmare. Help everyone else – and your hospitals – stay home (if you can)! 💞

  33. Meanwhile Trump wants us all to go back to normal life by easter when we haven’t even experienced the worst of the virus yet. Its just getting started

  34. Here in South Africa there are people who think it’s going to be over in 21 days after the lockdown tomorrow ??? How sad that they are living in that bubble and not seeing the severity of the situation ahead of us ?!
    I fear for my children 😔

  35. Government is saying do not go out the world is saying and Someone in Kentucky threw a " CORONAVIRUS PARTY" SO FUNNY OR STUPID AND GUESS WHAT one of them in the party was tested positive watch this https://youtu.be/P2R7_8T2EJs

  36. En Italia hay mucha idolatría dejen la idolatría y solo ore a la Trinidad no a hombre y no a nadie más. Dios bendiga mucho a Italia y los sane solo la sangre de Jesús

  37. China caused this! Idc what no one say! When the poor ophthalmologists told them about this they tried to hush him up instead of preparing and putting people on lock down! It took him to die for them to do something which was waayyy to late!

  38. Meanwhile 2/3 tube drivers in London UK are “self isolating” leading to massively overcrowding and danger for passengers. Good job our nurses and doctors aren’t following this lead. They should hang their heads in shame.

  39. You mean there won't be any more 'Hug a Chinese' days in Florence? Clearly not the smartest folk there. Does the mayor of Florence still have a job?

  40. COVID-19 has now spread around most parts of the world. SAWBO’s animation addresses best practices to protect against Coronavirus through recommended preventative measures. Watch and download here: https://sawbo-animations.org/859 or here https://youtu.be/F_0T0A9mAsc

  41. Schemers controlling their little worlds. Power grabs and shifts. This world deserves the misery that will no doubt continue with the duration of this decaying world.

  42. Italy is to a long extent forgivable for acting late and progressively as the real numbers unfolded.
    It was the 1st country after China to be struck by the epidemic and had no idea of what was coming because as usual China gave to the world only the propaganda numbers (after realizing they were unable to cover up everything)

    But the rest of the world???

  43. What is happening in Italy is nothing compare to what is going to happen in the US .

    Donald Trump focus more on how to save the banks than people … it is going to be a massacre .
