看着父亲在自己的ICU中对抗Covid的护士希望人们知道这种病毒是真实的

一位护士正在敲响警钟,说明为什么她自己的父亲最终因Covid-19而进入重症监护室后,人们仍然应该关心持续的大流行.

布里奇特·奥托(Bridget Otto), 爱荷华城的一名护士, 爱荷华州, has been caring for Covid-19 patients since March. When her own father got sick at the end of September and spent weeks in the ICU, the pandemic became even more personal.
He was an active farmer, and he was climbing up and down grain bins and out of equipment to ‘I can’t move my hands and legs,'” 她 told CNN affiliate KCCI. “And it’s just a result of being on a ventilator for four weeks, sedated and paralyzed and not moving.
现在, he’s still on oxygen support, but he’s recovering steadily, Otto said. But that’s not the case for all of her patients.
    I just want people to know that there is a real, true suffering out there and it is a direct result of this virus,” Otto said. “It’s not ‘ifyou’ll be affected someday, it’s ‘when.'

    全国各地, as cases of Covid-19 surge in almost every state, some people are not taking the virus seriously. But Otto said she and other nurses see the damage the virus causes in the ICU every day.
    A lot of people don’t see what we see, or don’t believe it,” 她说. “We don’t really have a choice to believe it or not in our ICU since we see it.
    And as many Americans gear up for holiday travelagainst the recommendations of many public health expertsshe said she’s staying home this year.
    I don’t want to miss out on holidays either,” Otto said, “but I’m going to. It’s the right thing to do.
      多于 250,000 people in the US have been killed by Covid-19, and experts say it’s only going to get worse, especially as the holiday season approaches.
      Some physicians have already predicted 一个 “unprecedented surge of Covid-19 cases in the US after Thanksgiving, as people travel to see family.
