Saigon hospital overwhelmed by Covid patients







Saigon is under a three-week lockdown, scheduled to end on August 1st. All wet markets are closed. Only supermarkets are open, but they're too expensive for most people. Saigon gets an influx of rural people each day. They come to work or sell stuff. Now, many are trapped inside the city without any income.

The friend who sent me this video is quarantined inside his apartment building, where 15 people have tested positive for Covid. My friend can't even go outside to shop for food, but must get it delivered.

In this disturbing video, there's a man's voice, "Oh God, I can’t even find a doctor at this hospital since this morning. They’re all hiding. There’s a dead body lying here since this morning, with no one to remove him to be cremated or be buried. Give the old man some oxygen! He’s about to die and there’s no doctor around. He probably won’t make it. All the doctors are hiding somewhere. The doctors don’t even dare to be here. There’s a corpse lying here since this morning. No burial, for real. There’s not a shadow of any medical personnel or doctor. Oh God, there’s an old man who’s about to die and there’s no doctor to save him."

Linh, with all due respect, this video was reminiscent of videos coming out of wuhan in the early days of covid, perhaps a bit less dramatic than that, of people falling down dead or unconscious on the streets of wuhan. The truth value of which, of course, now seems questionable given that similar footage doesn't seem to exist anywhere else in the world

HANOI, July 31 (Reuters) - Vietnam will from Monday extend strict curbs on movement in its business hub Ho Chi Minh City and another 18 cities and provinces throughout its south for another two weeks to help combat its worst COVID-19 outbreak, the government said.

After successfully containing the virus for much of the pandemic, Vietnam is facing a rapid spread of infections that has led to movement restrictions in around one-third of the country. It has registered a total of 145,000 cases and 1,306 deaths, 85% of which were recorded over the past month.

Lin,
Not to worry. Kamala is coming to announce that America is Back. The Vietnamese government should arrest her on sight.
