Due to the worsening pandemic, the health care system in many states of the United States is facing unprecedented pressure, Oklahoma in the central United States is one of them. Recently, the number of new confirmed cases and inpatients of COVID-19 has reached a new high.
A local doctor involved in the treatment recorded the current situation of the intensive care unit with his own lens. He also called on the public to abide by the pandemic prevention requirements and end the tragic scene of “ending no end” as soon as possible.
David Shansom, Director of the Infectious Disease Department of the Southwest Medical Center of Intergres, USA: Today I’m going to go to the hospital to take care of some patients.
Now the hospital is getting fuller and full, the intensive care unit is full, and all our facilities are running, barely meeting today’s challenges. However, there will be new challenges tomorrow, and we can only do our best. We are now in the COVID-19 care area at the Southwest Medical Center in Intergres. Who has something to say to everyone?
Doctor of Southwest Medical Center in England: We are all exhausted. If you don’t pay attention to protective measures, it will never end.
David Shansom, Director of the Infectious Diseases Department of the Southwest Medical Center of Intergres, USA: There is no end yet, which is absolutely right. This is a young patient in our hospital. She has been in for 5 days. How are you feeling today?
COVID-19 patient in the United States: Fortunately, I just feel very tired.

Coronavirus patients in the United States: Breathe.
David Chansom, Director of the Infectious Disease Department of Southwest Medical Center, Intelglis, USA: You look better today and will get through this difficulty. Do you have anything to say to people outside? People in Oklahoma, in particular, are on the rise in confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Charles Maines, ICU nurse at Intgris Southwest Medical Center: As a patient, I see the other side that I usually don’t see as a nurse. Many things have changed the way I care now, especially when you are young and may die. It’s terrible, and my family also It’s quite scary.
David Shansom, Director of the Infectious Diseases Department of Intgris Southwest Medical Center: I want to continue to advocate wearing masks, holding social gatherings responsibly, protecting myself, preventing transmission, keeping the safety of those around you, and keeping yourself safe. It’s all people’s business, not just doctors, nurses, but also breathing. Doctor’s business.
