A doctor in the Chinese city of Wuhan said that thousands of patients are waiting for hours to see doctors, though doctors have been advised not to come into work for fear of catching the deadly coronavirus outbreak.
The unnamed Wuhan doctor spoke to the BBC and discussed what conditions are like for medical staff in the city under lockdown.
The doctor told BBC News that the actual number of infected people “is probably higher” than what has been reported.
Another unnamed doctor told the South China Morning Post that the outbreak among medical staff was due to a lack of information and protective gear.
As of Friday morning, the disease has infected more than 830 people and killed 25 others.
