We tend to focus on the increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the U.S., and understandably so. But it’s worth remembering that the rest of the planet is grappling with this deadly virus as well.
Fox News’ Jerusalem-based correspondent Trey Yingst filed a report for America’s Newsroom this morning, not long after traveling to the two largest Covid-19 hospitals in Tel Aviv. At the largest hospital, he was not permitted to be next to the patients. However, at the second-largest hospital, he was able to report from the ICU and interact with patients.
Both hospitals are grappling with an increasing number of Covid-19 cases.
Reports say more than 14,000 people who call Israel home have tested positive for the virus. That number is expected to increase as the days and weeks go by.
Yingst spoke with doctors and nurses who said they do not have time to be afraid, they are too busy saving lives. He also encountered a 22-year-old patient that is in critical condition who doctors believe may not make it. The patient’s mother was just in the hospital the day before, delivering cookies to the staff.
Yingst, a 20-something himself, called both “humanizing and haunting at the same time.”
