In a hospital in Madrid (Spain), patients of the Covid-19 are placed on both sides of its corridors. The saturation threshold is greatly exceeded in the healthcare establishment. Only oxygen tanks placed on the ground can stabilize certain patients. Doctors call for help. “We are short of staff right now, and what little we have is in a very dangerous situation“says doctor Josep Maria Puig.
In Spain, more than 15,000 caregivers are sick or quarantined. This is nearly 15% of the confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country. For many, these are the precarious causes of work. The combinations, too few in number, are replaced by plastic bags. “It's getting worse. The protections are weaker and weaker, and we don't receive any new ones“, says nurse Maria De La Cuadra.
