Didn’t want to eat, didn’t want to drink. After a week I just called up the ambulance and here I am, straight in.” VARIOUS OF MEDICAL STAFF ON PHONE VARIOUS OF MEDICAL STAFF PUTTING ON PPE MONITOR CONSULTANT IN INTENSIVE CARE AND ACUTE MEDICINE, JOY HALLIDAY, TALKING TO COVID PATIENT, 70 YEAR OLD RETIREE, GEOFFREY WINTER MONITOR (SOUNDBITE) (English) 70 YEAR OLD RETIREE AND COVID PATIENT, GEOFFREY WINTER, SAYING: “Something that happened to somebody else. Yeah, pretty much. You feel, you know, immune and impervious to it, but I still took, you know, didn't go around, you know, irresponsibly, always wore a mask, number of contacts with people kept to a minimum. So I never, always took it seriously, I’m taking it even more seriously now. Now I see how vicious it is. Nasty.” VARIOUS OF 51 YEAR OLD SUPERMARKET EMPLOYEE AND COVID PATIENT, VICTORITA ANDRIES (SOUNDBITE) (English) 51 YEAR OLD SUPERMARKET EMPLOYEE AND COVID PATIENT, VICTORITA ANDRIES, SAYING: “I have many colleagues who have coronavirus.” (SOUNDBITE) (English) CONSULTANT IN INTENSIVE CARE AND ACUTE MEDICINE, JOY HALLIDAY,SAYING: “So we're getting a lot more people coming into hospital, a lot younger and a lot fitter. They're getting steroids and Remdesevir. But even despite that Victorita who's young and fit and fifty one still ended up needing to go on to a non-invasive ventilator. And so the people we are seeing in intensive care are the people that have had the steroids, they've had the Remdesivir, they've tried the CPAP machine and they've failed the CPAP machine and they've ended up in intensive care. And so you can imagine by the time they come to us now, they're even sicker than they were last time around.” PATIENT ON VENTILATOR IN INTENSIVE CARE MONITOR TUBES CONNECTED TO PATIENT ON VENTILATOR VARIOUS OF MEDICAL STAFF ATTENDING TO PATIENTS ON VENTILATORS FEET OF PATIENT ON VENTILATOR VARIOUS OF CLINICAL DIRECTOR OF ANAESTHESIA AND INTENSIVE CARE, WASSIM SHAMSUDDIN, LISTENING TO CHEST OF VENTILATED PATIENT (SOUNDBITE) (English) CLINICAL DIRECTOR OF ANAESTHESIA AND INTENSIVE CARE, WASSIM SHAMSUDDIN, SAYING: “Our mortality probably in the first wave for patients coming onto intensive care was around 40 percent. This time around we're finding that the mortality is about 80 percent.” (SOUNDBITE) (English) CLINICAL DIRECTOR OF ANAESTHESIA AND INTENSIVE CARE, WASSIM SHAMSUDDIN, SAYING: “Intensive care hospitals are meant to be a place where we treat patients and make them better. You know, I think the difficulty is here that even though we try our best and we, you know, throw everything at the patients, including the kitchen sink, it just doesn't seem to be working. And so I think, yes, it does get to us. Yes, I think long term staff will have to come to terms with this pandemic. And I think certainly we'll probably see staff leaving the NHS because of what they've experienced.” CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF MILTON KEYNES UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST, JOE HARRISON, BEING INTERVIEWED (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF MILTON KEYNES UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST, JOE HARRISON,SAYING: “We've seen more than twice the number of patients coming through our hospital in this second wave compared to the first wave, and unfortunately we've had two and a half times the number of people die in the hospital from COVID than from the first wave. So a significant increase across all areas." VARIOUS OF MEDICAL STAFF PATIENT’S HANDS (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF MILTON KEYNES UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST, JOE HARRISON,SAYING: “What we're seeing is people having to manage families of patients that have died, quite often dealing with this more over the last few months than they will do in the whole of their careers. And that emotional toll is really, really challenging the whole of the team here.” (SOUNDBITE) (English) CLINICAL DIRECTOR OF ANAESTHESIA AND INTENSIVE CARE, WASSIM SHAMSUDDIN, SAYING: “So personally, it has affected me. I think, you know, if I think about last year 2020 and I think about the beginning of this year, you know, I do have sleepless nights.” HALLIDAY’S NAME TAG (SOUNDBITE) (English) CONSULTANT IN INTENSIVE CARE AND ACUTE MEDICINE, JOY HALLIDAY, SAYING: “Yeah, it's tough, it's tough, it's draining, it's draining physically, it's draining mentally, the decisions that we're having to make on people, decisions that we're having to make on people that ordinarily would survive are not surviving the coronavirus. And even if we had every treatment that we could offer them, we're still not managing to get people better. So it is incredibly difficult, incredibly difficult.” MARSHALL BREATHING THROUGH MASK MONITOR HALLIDAY INFORMING MARSHALL THAT THEY WILL ARRANGE FOR HIS STEP DAUGHTER TO COME AND VISIT HIM, FAMILY VISITS NORMALY ONLY ALLOWED WHEN THE STAFF FEEL THE CHANCES OF SURVIVAL ARE SLIM TO NONE (SOUNDBITE) (English) CONSULTANT IN INTENSIVE CARE AND ACUTE MEDICINE, JOY HALLIDAY, SAYING: “We will get Juliet in to see you if we’re allowed to. Obviously, we know that visiting’s obviously very, very limited. But we said that that might be something we're going to try and do if we can.” (SOUNDBITE) (English) 68 YEAR OLD RETIREE AND COVID PATIENT, STEPHEN MARSHALL, SAYING: “What’s the matter with these people? (who don’t believe in the coronavirus and refuse to get vaccinated) Can’t they see what’s happening in front of them? They’ve got no brains, and they say ‘I won’t have the vaccine’. I’m sorry if you don’t have the vaccine you don’t come in my shop, you don’t come in my pub, you don’t come in.. Until people have had it everyone should be exiled or excluded from everywhere. I can’t understand these people.” JOURNALIST ASKING: DOES IT MAKE YOU ANGRY? “Very, very angry indeed.” MARSHALL IN BED
