Italy's crisis wards shows coronavirus patients unable to breathe

Terrifying footage inside Italy's crisis wards shows coronavirus patients unable to breathe as doctors warn their best efforts are 'not enough' after fatalities soared by 475 to 3,405 - the HIGHEST death toll in the world, even more than China.

Desperate Italian medics at the coronavirus epicentre told how all their efforts 'are not enough' as their country's death toll soared above that of even China.
The number of fatalities there hit 3,405 yesterday, the highest in the world, despite the valiant efforts of shattered doctors to keep the ailing victims of the virus alive.
A shocking Sky News report showed the hectic scenes inside the Papa Giovanni XXII hospital in the crisis-hit area of Bergamo in Lombardy, with staff rushing through wards with beds full of patients in distress.
Horrifying video footage showed people gasping for air while holding onto their chests and tubes amid a constant bleep of heart monitors and breathing pumps.
Dr Lorenzo Grazioli, who works at the hospital but was previously based in Leicester, told Sky News's Stuart Ramsay: 'I have never felt so stressed in my life.
'I'm an intensivist, and I am quite used to intense moments, and the choices, and people are critical and die without any treatment, and you [usually] make the difference.
Italy has now overtaken China as the country with the most coronavirus deaths after suffering 427 more fatalities, taking the total number to 3,405
Both the death toll and number of confirmed cases shot up again today and the nation has now recorded 41,035 infections, more than half of the world's positive cases. Pictured: Medical personnel at work in the intensive care unit of the hospital of Brescia, Italy
'But when you are at this point you realise that you are not enough. We are 100 anaesthetists, we are doing our best, but maybe it's not enough.'
Both the death toll and number of confirmed cases shot up again yesterday and the nation has now recorded 41,035 infections, more than half of the world's positive cases.
On Wednesday, Italy recorded the highest one-day official coronavirus death toll of any country with 475 deaths in just 24 hours.
The latest figures have quashed hopes that the unprecedented national lockdown was helping to slow the spread of the pathogen.
Italy reached the gruesome milestone on the same day the original epicentre of the pandemic, Wuhan in China, recorded no new infections.
Overall, China on Thursday counted 3,249 dead, 156 fewer than Italy, according to the Johns Hopkins University virus map.
Italians have been ordered to stay indoors, with schools and universities shut, shops closed except for grocery stores and pharmacies, and heavy restrictions on travel.
But the country's healthcare system has been overwhelmed by the virus and on Thursday a visiting Chinese Red Cross team criticised the failure of Italians to fully quarantine and take the national lockdown seriously.
Meanwhile military trucks were deployed across Italy to transport scores of victims' coffins to be cremated as chilling footage also emerged of patients laid out on hospital beds along the corridors of an intensive care unit in Bergamo.
The crisis is underlining how health services in northern Italy have been overwhelmed by the pandemic, with doctors describing hospitals in crisis and many medics working from makeshift tents.
The governor of Lombardy, the worst-affected region which includes Bergamo, said doctors and nurses in the region's hospitals were at their limits.
