2020-03-19 22:52:08 Coronavirus patients in Italy are treated as “numbers”, a British nurse has told ITV News, as hospitals struggle to deal with the huge increase in cases.

Connor McAinsh, who works at the Gavazzeni Hospital in Bergamo, in one of the worst affected regions in Italy, said the intensive care unit where he works has seen “an endless stream of people coming in” being treated for coronavirus.

Some 3,405 people in Italy have died from Covid-19, meaning deaths there have surpassed those in China.
