Last week, Nebraska ICU nurse Lacie Gooch recorded a video of herself after a long shift talking about the overwhelming number of people dying in hospitals from COVID-19. In a bonus episode of the podcast, Gooch talks with Stephanie Desmon about the viral video, and why frontline health care workers are taking to social media to describe the desperate situation and to beg people to wear masks and social distance, especially ahead of the holidays. Gooch also talks about how the overwhelming rise of COVID cases could mean hospitals will be unable to provide care for other emergencies like heart attacks or car accidents.
