  1. I liked this a lot! I've been trying to search for a YouTube video like yours that really informs the ideas in this video! 🧑‍⚕️ The part at 1:25 is my favorite. Your explanation totally is similar to the content from this informative med student Doctor Ethan. Doctor's videos are informative and I actually learned a lot for my studies.

    You should watch his page out and give the health enthusiast a like over here! 👉 #DrEthanMedicine

  2. There is only one good thing that's come out of the coronavirus. is that it is reminding people of there morality and in doing so get some to think about the afterlife. which the bible says there is hell and heaven. and we know GOD does exist because there has to be a creator of everything. nothing cant create everything. and we know GOD wants morality because he gave us a moral under standing. but the bible also says GOD is forgiving and he sent his son Jesus. all you have to do is repent of your sins. acts 17:30. and trust Jesus Christ. john 3:16. then GOD will give you eternal life in heaven as a free gift. I hope this was helpful i do this to share the gospel not for likes. have a nice day amen.

  3. Had covid and the fatigue, weakness is crushing. When you aren't used to such fatigue and inability it is depressing. Healthcare doesn't allow one to fully recover before going to work… fever gone, work. incision no longer needs dressing, work. miscarried 3 days ago,work. It was never healthy occupation. As she said workplace must change, licensing must acknowledge humanity and most importantly WEAR A MASK.

  4. "Health care workers face (Covid) pandemic mental health emergency" thereby motivating us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to #ConvinceItForward for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more #MourningInAmerica. Thus, we're hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the #UKvariant strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, Californian & #Cluster5Mink mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.

  5. So healthcare professional s are afraid of seeking help because they don't want to be reported. Yet encourage the public to exactly that. Sure sounds logical to me!

  6. Cuomo killed thousands of elderly people in nursing homes. Needlessly and alone. That is a fact. All the mainstream media who decided to ignore and not report on this story. You all have the blood of those who died on your hands as well. You are disgusting parasites. Also all those entertainers who came out in support of Cuomo. You also have blood on your hands. For what? Dirty politics. Hatred. You all are disgusting disgusting dirtbags. Those people were so ones parents. Grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends. Live with that you pieces of sh@t.

  7. Physicians and nurses? How about the housekeeping staff? The Radiology staff? The whole entire hospital has been affected by this disease and we're all worn out! No disrespect to doctors and nurses

  8. Wearing a mask everyday for a year will lead to mental illness, your body needs precious oxygen but the sheeple will never get it.

  9. It is what it is thea's people went in to medicine like aney thing you get the good & the bad the strongest ones will SURVIVE the weakest ones won't 🤷
    Covet is testing all of us in one way shape or form & the strongest ones will SURVIVE.

  10. And….Nurses are underpaid. Student loans for doctors.are.crippling. we are going to be in deeper trouble if we dont take this seriously

  11. May Dr. Lorna rest easily. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to walk in our wonderful healthcare workers' shoes. I'm so glad that psyche professionals are standing up for them. The delusional idiots on social media pushing lies and ridiculous conspiracy theories have a big part to play in the devastation.

  12. We all need to care for each other and ourselves Better..We need to do our part in staying healthy so the medical world can recoop..stay safe

  13. One thing citizens can do! RESPECT THEM! Most people respect them but maybe 10% do not! They are rude in waiting room,they complain about everything,they do not following rules,they call for any single thing etc..let them work do not put pressure on them..

  14. No cure?
    That mean someone need to rush to hospital for dipping into icy water cos fever cannot subdue and keep shooting up even vommit only can see medicine.
    If not, someone would collapse after temperature breached 42°, like those patients that dropping like flies in China even clinic still open….

    Shortness of breath?
    Old days where got oxygen tank but sideway sleeping. Cos human still can breath using one lungs after another compressed by body weight and alternate, if one side congested so someone still can breath after the flattern one had expanded..

    Just not much people can withstand the coldness of icy water since dipping could last for 4 hours, if fever refuse to subdue or that's life of allergic patients since their disease only have a SARS chart as precaution without cure.
    And that only, if their symptoms being mild since allergic to peanut could kill in less than a minutes or what happen to Wongsu bestfriend in Indonesia since Vietnam coffee add peanut powder to enrich aroma.

    Just the problem here, doctor would not use the same method to save you, if you were not allergic patient or why alot of COV19 patient dying, due to oxygen tank usages.
    Cos what congested in their lungs, need to be forced out but somehow blocked by pressure that forcing oxygen in or why only sideway sleeping could work.

    That is why, you need to memorize granny method that could avoid hospitalization even you were young and energetic since your family maynot make it out alive after admitted.
    And that not included, the chances of you getting fainted due to extreme high fever. Cos by then, even your awareness cannot forbid paramedic put you on oxygen tank.

    Don't mention about pain, that one had to endures without  medicine thru out 14 days and could be prolonged, based on experience of ex patients.
    Cos Granny method need medicine from clinic or over the counter after the process had forced the disease change behaviour and cured like common flu patient, within two days.

    Granny Method exist after doctor told granny, her grandson disease don't have cure and why the method works on COV19 cos allergic were actually a contagious disease that once infected his siblings.

    Covid-19 only saw human dying, not like H1N1. If disease not originated from human, why others not dying too like livestock?
    Bat's? Ebola they said originated from bat, doctor also said SARS come from bat's too.
    Covid-19? Even kids aware, must come from bat's.

    Pig, duck, chicken and camel, all died cos they get too near to human being livestock but 3 diseases cannot see bats dying. .
    Camel live in desert, then how they got the same disease like chicken, duck and pig, if not from sick human since livestock have meaning?
    H1N1 already proven originated from human and only you still believe doctor that Covid-19 come from bat's even they not dying
    (Remember where to find cure since vaccine cannot work on all diseases and one of it, is Covid-19)

  15. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  16. Tomorrow the US will reach 500,000 Covid deaths.

    After 12 months New Zealand has only had 26 Covid deaths.

    NZ are proof that social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing saves lives.

    US are proof that Traitor Trump's herd immunity is the world's biggest catastrophe.

  17. New Zealand applauds Biden's US for rejoining the WHO along with the 100 days of masks initiative.

    In 20 seconds another American family will lose a family member thanks to Traitor Trump and his MAGATs!

    Covid deaths US 498,197 UK 117,396 Canada 21,311 China 4,636 Australia 909 NZ 26 Taiwan 9.

  18. Why do US Media keep asking internationally ridiculed Americans with 498,197 Covid deaths with another every 20 seconds about the pandemic?

    Why aren't you interviewing New Zealanders 26 and Taiwanese 9? Why doesn't the CDC a have a New Zealander or Taiwanese on their broadcasts?

    After 6 months with 1 Covid fatality in New Zealand, watching US news is like stepping back in time.
