For the first time, a hospital in Spain, the Queen Sofia in Murcia, has allowed a journalist full and free access to document the struggle of its doctors and nurses with coronavirus, eight months after the pandemic began.

In this first report, the healthcare workers explain their work since March, and how they have had to adapt, the suffering coronavirus uncertainty means for their patients, and why not everybody gets a test if they turn up at the emergency room.

Filmed on November 15, 2020.
