Liverpool’s Frontline: inside a Covid ICU

Covid-19 cases are on the rise in Liverpool and this is having a direct impact on hospital admissions.

Every day teams of doctors and nurses go above and beyond to help those suffering from this virus.

Liverpool city council’s communications team have been given unprecedented access inside the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, and more specifically the intensive care ward which is seeing increasing numbers of patients admitted with Covid-19.

Lets get through it together.

The whole hospital staff are totally brilliant and Liverpool should be proud of them.

It’s not going to go away very quickly, it is killing people.
