  • This person has been posting a video journal of his wife's COVID-19 infection. She was doing better but then was hospitalized. This is apparently the last video for awhile so that the husband can spend more time helping his wife who is quarantined. I don't understand how he is going to help her exactly...

    Anyway...since she has been in the hospital he is wearing surgical masks inside his apartment even when she is not there. I am not sure what is going on. He is a professional photographer so he does not use anyone else to help him. His videos appear to be made without any one assisting him.

        "There’s no toilet, no medicine, no hot water....So many people! How can we possibly recover? The risk of cross-infection is terrifying ...Please help me," said one patient who was being confined at a makeshift hospital in #Wuhan amid #coronavirusoutbreak.

                    • UK Citizen in Wuhan gives a video update on life inside Wuhan. His wife is Chinese and was not allowed to leave with him for the UK so he decided to stay.

                      In the video starting at time about 17:30 in he says that Wuhan citizens believe the death toll to be more like 100,000 - some, including his wife thinks more like 200,000.

                      Nobody believes the official figures. Obviously I'm not claiming his numbers are correct but it is direct from someone inside Wuhan. See for yourself below.

                          Interesting! He said that he and his wife have a box of 20 masks and you can get arrested for going outside without one. So that is essentially 20 trips. What happens after that? Isn't everyone going to be in the same situation soon?

                        Nurses from a temporary hospital in Wuhan found a way to cheer up patients: simple movements and loud music made some of them get up and dance a little.

                        • A beautifully written diary of a young nurse taking care of patients in intensive care in Wuhan. A small snip...
                          http://www.mychinanews.com/news/n/6/2420263

                           
                          Wu Yiying's first visit to Wuhan was too late to become familiar with the city. On January 25, Jinyintan Hospital handed over the second and third floors of the North Hospital to the Shanghai medical team of more than 130 people. The second floor is the general ward, and the third floor is the intensive care unit.

                            At that time, Jinyintan Hospital attracted worldwide attention and was treating the largest number of patients with new coronary pneumonia. Formerly known as Wuhan Medical Treatment Center, it is the only public health medical treatment base in Wuhan with a history of nearly 100 years. It is also the designated hospital for emergency medical treatment in Hubei and Wuhan. Among Wuhan residents, this is a hospital that specializes in treating infectious patients.

                            Wu Yiying's first impression was that the medical staff of Jinyintan Hospital, who had been working for more than a month, obviously felt overwhelmed. "Nursing records are messy and the ward environment is terrible." Wu Yiying described that the ward could only be cleaned once every two days, and the garbage spilled out of the trash.

                            Like most hospitals seeking online help, there is also a shortage of supplies here, and surgical gowns and scalpels are not enough. "I used it today, I don't know if it will be tomorrow." Wu Yiying said, the most intuitive thing is the lack of medical supplies, lack of nurses, and living materials have been tense. Immediately resolved after good coordination. "

                            Nursing One person takes care of 4 critically ill patients, a patient finishes a bowl of porridge in an hour and a half

                            In the afternoon of January 26, Wu Yiying learned that she was assigned to the intensive care unit on the third floor of the North Hospital of Jinyintan Hospital. The first class was the night shift.

                            Most of the severely ill Jinyintan Hospitals are isolated areas. In the intensive care unit, more than 20 patients are using non-invasive ventilators.
