A British Army medic battling to save Covid-19 patients in a UK hospital says it is tougher than war-torn Afghanistan.
As per Mirror report, the UK army Major said that the relentless pressure in overwhelmed hospitals is more intense than treating the wounded from battlefields in Helmand Province.
The officer, who served in Afghanistan in 2010, is at a hospital in the Midlands where critical care is currently running at 80% over capacity.
He said: “This second wave has pushed everyone to their limit. I would say most of the medical staff are physically and mentally exhausted.
“You come into work tired, hoping that today will be the day when the number of patients coming in will start to slow – but it never does.
“You’re left wondering how much longer you can continue. By comparison, Afghanistan was far easier than dealing with Covid,” he added.
