Where are we heading? #Covid_19 is hitting our society hard & esp our young (10-19yrs). We will soon start seeing horrific images in our hospitals like other countries. At this pace, critical care beds will fill by mid-August. We are at a very dangerous point! #HealthcareHeroes pic.twitter.com/r7wDt2xN6W— Petra Khoury (@petra_khoury) July 25, 2020
