Speaking to the BBC’s Clive Myrie, she said, “How do you ever prepare for this? People who just die and die and die?

‘Although it’s our job and we deal with the dead every day, I think that level has taken its toll’

The Barts NHS Trust, which operates five hospitals including Royal London, has announced as of Jan. January 1357 deaths recorded in patients with confirmed Covid-19 In the same period, 8009 inpatients admitted to hospital with confirmed Covid-19 recovered and discharged

At the end of December, a leaked email from hospital bosses to staff revealed that after an influx of 200 Covid patients, we are no longer offering high-level critical care because we cannot

It comes after the UK hit a dismal new milestone yesterday with the highest number of Covid deaths (Jan.610) within 24 hours It was a sharp increase of 30 percent compared to the 1 announced last Tuesday243 and almost twice as many as two weeks ago when there were 860

The Intensive Care Faculty has warned that many hospitals are overwhelmed and that some staff are on their knees after many months of treating sick patients

According to official information, there are now more than 10 in London000 people died of coronavirus

Myrie was filming at the Royal London Hospital for 10 days, talking to staff, patients and family members about a special report

When asked if the morgue feels like a “conveyor belt,” Hannah – whose official role is an anatomical pathology technologist – admitted, “In a way, I hate to say that because I hate so thinking about it, but yeah, almost ‘

Hannah admitted that the devastating number of bodies flowing through the morgue (pictured) feels like a conveyor belt

When reporter Clive Myrie spoke about the BBC breakfast this morning, he said the raw emotion came from Hannah capturing all of this for the entire pandemic

She burst into tears and added, “Sorry I’ve been doing this for years. If someone says how you feel about it, and you say how you feel about it, that’s how you feel ‘

Speaking at the BBC breakfast this morning, Myrie said the raw emotion was due to Hannah “capturing all of this for the entire pandemic”

“When we were filming her, she told me she doesn’t talk about it with family or friends because nobody outside of her circle wants to talk about death,” he told hosts Dan Walker and Louise Minchin,

‘These emotions and feelings are brought together in this team of five at the Royal London Hospital, and an outsider can approach her and say, “How do you feel about what you had to see?” was something she just wasn’t prepared for

Hannah’s colleague also gets weepy as she admits that nothing could have prepared her for the toll the pandemic has meant for her

‘What you saw there has been months and months of pain, pain, frustration just because no one outside of her circle ever asks her how she is feeling and that’s what we want to convey in these films The side of the Pandemic that so many people know about in the back of their minds but don’t really want to think or think about ‘

The report also showed devastating scenes of Covid wards occupying 12 of the 15 floors of the hospital – a total of 400 patients

Tearfully after the call, she admitted, “It’s very difficult because this poor family has been through a lot and actually someone nice, which makes it harder ‘

Marie added, “I think the public wants to do the right thing, but I don’t think they fully understand the extent of the problem ‘

Kathy Macgloin, a consultant anesthetist who is currently “meddling” in intensive care units, said she was taking care of a Covid patient in her mid twenties whose oxygen levels had dropped to dangerous levels

She explained, “I’m sweating and it’s not just the PPE, so I mean she’s young, she’s a relative of someone This is something precious that we hold in our hands and that we’re trying to do, yes, it’s pretty scary ‘

It comes weeks after the bosses have admitted to the employees via email that they are so overwhelmed with cases: “We no longer offer critical care at a high level because we cannot”

The warning leaked to NHS campaign group Every Doctor UK came when the hospital’s doctors and nurses asked bosses to declare an emergency as they opened a new ward and moved adults to a children’s ward after 200 new Covid patients had been admitted to the hospital at the end of December
