CO.VID-19 Virus Poses A Deadly Threat To Patients Once They Have To Been Placed On Ventilators

Unfortunately, these patients may have to face a much higher death rate, according to the study.

Because of the steady increase in the number of infections and deaths caused by the COVID-19 virus, hospitals are observing an inevitable lack of ventilators - the crucial machines that needed to treat patients who suffer from severe pneumonia or acute respiratory distress syndrome. However, a new study indicates that nearly 88% of those hooked up to ventilators died, according to data from Northwell Health, New York’s largest health system.

According to Prof. Karina Davidson, who has also taken part in the study, New York has become the epicenter of this pandemic.
