People should not be put in ventilators especially not when they have this so called covid , the families should be beside the loved ones,the reason why they want the families away from this people is because the system dies what ever they want without any oppositions or obstacles . Usually killing the patients.
The pandemic is not real you as a nurse should know this.

I'm having to self isolate as I am in the high risk category of contracting covid19, so I've been stuck at home for months, my sister in law contracted covid19 at her work, she was lucky enough to have pulled through it, but she now has pneumonia and last Sunday she had an angina attack, she was also lucky to have survived that, so I thank all the doctors at the Glasgow royal infirmary who looked after her, the reason I'm high risk is because I'm autoimmune, I've also had pneumonia 4 times, and the 4th time that i had pneumonia, I also had sepsis on top, not many people survive sepsis alone as it is fatal, so I thank all the doctors yet again at the Glasgow royal infirmary ICU for looking after me in October last year who saved my life then, they're amazing, and they are proper heroes right now, and I thank them for saving my sister in law, god bless them all, and I wish that they all stay safe and take care, loads of love to all of the staff at the Glasgow royal infirmary hospital in Scotland xxx


Lakisha, do I detect a slight bit of Scottish in your accent? It's an amazing job you are all doing, well done to you all xxx
