‘I feel exhausted, physically and emotionally. And frustrated to be working in these conditions,’ doctor tells Graham Keeley in Madrid.
Italy recorded another 969 coronavirus deaths on Friday, bringing its death toll to more than 9,150 — more than double the toll in China, where the pandemic began.
Some Italian patients have been transferred to Germany due to critical shortages of ventilators and supplies. Spain recorded its deadliest day yet, with 769 COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours.
Spain is grappling with an unprecedented healthcare crisis. On Friday, the number of people killed by coronavirus leapt by a record 769 in just 24 hours to 4,858, health authorities said. This is the highest rise in one day in the country since the start of the pandemic. The total number infected stands at 64,059.
