Inside a Myanmar clinic fighting a new Covid surge
AFP, 17 Jul 2021
In a clinic in a remote Myanmar town, some of the few doctors still working after the coup emptied hospitals are battling to keep their Covid-19 patients alive as the virus resurges. AFPTV footage from inside a clinic in the northwestern town of Kalay shows patients slumped in makeshift beds, oxygen canisters at their feet. Dozens of blue oxygen cylinders waiting to be refilled stretched along a street in Kalay, a town of 130,000, with rugged hills to the east and west. Meanwhile, on the edge of town a team unloads a coffin into a cemetery of white Christian crosses standing out against the deep green of the hills.
