Coronavirus nurse warns horrific hospital conditions means ‘EVERYONE will be infected’

Disturbing video footage of the pile-up of bodies was shared on social media. In a warning post, the nurse described how patients were being sent in non-stop and without any quarantine measures and added: “Everyone will end up being infected and dying.” Unverified footage in the form of screenshots taken of the video shows several corpses covered in white sheets and left in long corridors in the unnamed hospital in Wuhan, where the coronavirus spawned.

A voice was originally heard on the footage saying: “Three corpses have been lying here all morning.”

The woman added: “Some of them died in the wee hours. Nobody has come to deal with them yet.

“And doctors, nurses and patients, they all work in such an environment.

“This is what is going on in a designated hospital. Not a single person is here to manage.”

It has since emerged the footage was taken from the halls of Wuhan Red Cross Hospital, one of the facilities appointed by the government to receive suspected patients.

It comes as yet another case of the deadly disease has been confirmed in the US.

Authorities say a woman in her 60s returned to Chicago from the Chinese city of Wuhan on January 13 and began experiencing symptoms a few days after arriving home.

This is the second confirmed case of coronavirus in the US after another person was rushed to hospital in Seattle, Washington earlier this week.

There are at least two suspected cases in Tennessee and Texas, with a student from Tennessee Tech University being tested for the coronavirus as well as Texas A&M University student.

The woman called her doctors after symptoms of the deadly virus began to appear.

She was then admitted to hospital and placed in isolation, health officials said.

Further testing confirmed she had the virus.

Upon emerging from the meeting, Health Secretary Matt Hancock told media the clinical advice was that the risk to the public remains low.
