As China is struggling with a rapid re-emergence of Covid cases, reminding the rest of the world of how the year 2020 had started, a lot of videos of the present situation at the hospitals in China have emerged.

In one video, shared by the Telegraph, a doctor, apparently so exhausted from attending patients, collapsed on the chair.

Here's the video:


In another video, several Covid patients were seen lying on the floor receiving CPR from automated machines and a group of doctors.


The fresh wave has hit China following its stringent lockdown was lifted last month. Hospitals are packed to their capacity and crematoriums are seeing a sudden rise in dead bodies as BF.7 variant of the Omicron is believed to be the main reason behind the worrying rise.

In the video, posted by The Telegraph, the doctor can be seen attending to one patient after another and then suddenly collapses on his chair needing the intervention of other doctors. Unable to revive him, his colleagues moved him out of the chair, The Telegraph video said.

While China's worsening situation has become a concern in the past few days, the incident, as reported by The Telegraph, happened on December 14, indicating that the inrush of patients began weeks ago.

Millions of deaths have been predicted in the latest rise of Covid cases in China as the health system is completely stressed. As per an estimate, more than 60 per cent of China and 10 per cent of the world's population are likley to be infected by Covid in the coming 90 days.
