Dr Alex Shares Emotional Video Showing Reality Of Life On The Covid Front Line

Dr Alex Shares Emotional Video Showing Reality Of Life On The Covid Front Line

Dr Alex George has shared a touching video showing the realities of working on the front line during the third national lockdown.

The former Love Island star spoke to staff at Lewisham Hospital in south-east London about the pressures of working in the A&E department and treating Covid-19 patients.

In one part of the video, Dr Alex interviews an A&E consultant who speaks about the high number of patients coming into the hospital for treatment compared the low numbers leaving.

Dr Alex also discusses staff morale. He says: "There's a limited number of space we've got a limited capacity we've got a limited number of doctors and nurses we can't magic that out of thin air. We're all doing our our best and I think I found it a bit hard sometimes when you feel like 'wow this is borderline getting to the point where we can't take any more.

"You don't want to see a situation where at one point, you know, the other week we had patients queuing up in the ambulances. You know people waiting the ambulances to come in and that's something that's happening around the country, that's not just here, that's everywhere. But no one wants to see that. We don't want to see that."

Dr Alex has posted several videos about his experiences working on the front line throughout the pandemic.

One person commented: "You need to be nominated and receive an Honour. (As well as recognition of course of healthcare workers). The person you have been throughout this year has been nothing short of incredible. You are a true role model for youngsters, making the most of your position and raising awareness for all the right reasons. I genuinely believe you deserve recognition for what you have done."
