As the COVID-19 infection curve has already peaked in several major cities including Beijing, Global Times reporters on Wednesday went to Beijing’s Daxing District People’s Hospital, which received nearly 70 percent of severe COVID-19 cases in the district, to see if the “hardest time” has already passed for medical workers.
Doctors said that although the number of patients admitted into emergency rooms and fever clinics has halved, the number of severe cases is still high, and hospitals are facing a challenge due to a lack of medical workers.
