The real fight against COVID-19 at the hospitals is still a mystery for many who stay at home. The energy and sacrifice of the medical staff could never praise enough. The lives of those who are working at the hospitals are completely devoted to the combat against COVID-19. So here these clicks are made by a Houston-based photographer to give everyone a better understanding of how critical the situation is inside the hospitals. Even though we hear many stories about COVID-19, the biggest bad and the fight are found inside the walls of Hospitals.
Nakamura, Houston-based photojournalist has visited the United Memorial Medical Center many times since the month May from where we entered to this dangerous COVID-19 era. And he has been documenting almost everything found in the COVID ward which makes him really sensitive. When he takes visits there, he finds his adrenaline pumping. But he has to be in control and focus on shooting the scenes. Sometimes he feels like closing his eyes, but Nakamura has to take the shot. So doing all these so hard, he wants people to get aware about this hard situation spreading globally. And these clearly shows some big chapters of COVID-19 reality revealing how patients and medical staff struggle to keep things under control.
By Monday, the total deaths in the United States have surpassed 300,000. So this is the time to raise the collective sense and effort towards controlling COVID-19, doing our individual responsibility. Hope these images will help you with that making you relaize how danger to caught in Coronavirus. Take a look at some unseen situations of COVID Pandemic.
