A recent video from NSW Health shows Dr Richard Totaro, Co-Director of the Intensive Care Service at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, offering an insight into the burden of COVID-19 on ICU wards. He also explains the importance of getting vaccinated.
“We want to stop people getting sick and ending up in ICU, and there is really good evidence from all over the world that the vaccinations that we have available to us stop people needing to come into hospital.”
