November 17th. The current situation of the Coronavirus pandemic in the United States is severe, but many Americans still have questions about whether the virus really exists. An emergency room nurse in South Dakota stated that many patients she had contacted did not believe that they had died of Coronavirus, which made her feel very frustrated.
According to the U.S. “Capitol Hill” report on the 16th, emergency room nurse Jodie Dorgen mentioned on Twitter that some patients with Coronavirus do not believe that the virus really exists, even if they are breathing heavily on respiratory equipment 100% is also like this. In a CNN program, the nurse further stated: “This is not a particular patient, but many people are like this.” She even said that these patients “the last sentence they say before they die is still’this Impossible to happen “This is false.”
“People hope that it (Coronavirus) is flu, it is ordinary pneumonia, some people even say that they may have lung cancer. Even if the test result is positive, some people just don’t believe it.” Dorgen also mentioned that many patients use “anger and hatred” to attack nurses like her: “They call your name and ask why you wear those’things’ because they think they are not infected with Coronavirus. This disease is also not real. It makes people feel sad, angry and depressed.”
On the 16th local time, South Dakota reported 821 new cases of Coronavirus, and currently there are 62,521 confirmed cases in the state. The state health department reported that 20% of the local hospital beds are currently occupied by patients with COVID-19.
