Top officials just sounded the alarm on COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus. A “tsunami” could be coming and people — especially the healthcare system — need to prepare for it. This is stunning.
“The word that is often used to me is a continuous ‘tsunami,'” said Chris Hopson with the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). London hospitals are reportedly concerned about “wave, after wave, after wave,” of the virus.
In addition to the infection numbers rising, the NHS is also concerned about “staff sickness, with some facilities seeing 50 percent of medics struck down by coronavirus or self-isolating with symptoms,” reported Breitbart.
