'You start with such high hopes': Inside Italy hospital at epicentre of virus outbreak 5

In Bergamo, which is close to the Alps, it's thought fatalities could be double previous estimates. The reason - because so many elderly patients died untested at home.

The outbreak was first detected in the town of Alzano Lombardo, where filmmaker Francesca Tosarelli has been documenting the struggle facing hospital staff and grieving families who have been unable to say goodbye properly to their loved ones.

💬 Comments on the video

The Cleaners and Porters are as usual the invisible part of the Health service, never mentioned never thanked but if you don't scrub every inch of a hospital hundreds of thousands would die every week so I guess they have the most important job in the service but are the least paid and appreciated.

Without the honesty, the transparency of the Italians, the global situation would be much worse. Italy 🇮🇹 is owed every gratitude and respect for the lives it has saved by direct medical care, and indirectly by warning the world.

The day has finally arrived when medical staff and even the hospital cleaners are recognised as the true heroes of society.
While the self centred narcissist movie star who makes 50 million dollars per movie, or the egocentric Music star is relegated to the lowest rung on the social ladder of relevance.
The age of celebrity worship is hopefully gone, now that we’re all on the same boat, in the same storm.
