A video purportedly showing COVID-19 patients at St Mary’s Hospital in London being circulated on the social media is heartbreaking. TODAY NEWS AFRICA was unable to determine where the video was recorded, but those sharing it said it was St Mary’s Hospital in London.
St Mary’s Hospital is an NHS hospital in Paddington, in the city of Westminster in London. It was founded in 1845.
Patients are seen sleeping on the floor as hospital beds seem scarce.
If it turns out to be true, the video would be a glimpse into how overwhelmed some hospitals might have become in Europe.
