Covid-19 #1

Starting to treat my 1st Covid positive patient as part of "national service." Feeling very much like a Star Wars episode, I have a bad feeling about him.

Weighing 130kg aka morbidly obese, panting like a untrained long-distance runner and blood oxygen level hovering at a critical level (SpO2 90% in med-speak) despite full force of oxygen blasting at him.

His best option, for all concerned, is a transfer to a Govt facility. Hopefully I, despite my physical short-sightedness, am not the only one with 20/20 vision.
