This doctor’s assessment of where we are with Covid right now is damning and terrifying
This clip of palliative care doctor and writer Rachel Clarke’s assessment of where the country is in the battle to cope with Covid-19 right now went viral because it’s so damning – and terrifying.
It’s from BBC1’s Question Time this week and was still being shared on Friday as London mayor Sadiq Khan declared a Covid-19 emergency with hospitals struggling to cope with the number of cases.
“We’ve lost more than the Australian death toll in 24 hours”
