Second Wave

Celine Chariot, Belgium

Report made in a hospital during the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Belgium was a seriously affected country, hospitals were quickly saturated, as were cemeteries.
The front-line health workers are exhausted.
Families of patients are not allowed to visit.
The reality seen from inside the hospital is complicated, a report of war, of a battlefield.
For the moment, the nursing staff live with the fear that a third wave will still come to shake them.
