‘Medic’ screams in social media video claiming to be inside coronavirus hospital

A "medic" has been filmed shrieking hysterically while colleagues try to calm her down in footage posted on social media claiming to be inside a hospital in China overwhelmed by the coronavirus.

In the clip, a tired-looking staff member is seen staring at her phone and holding her head in her hands while a woman next to her shrieks.

Crying with her head flung back, the woman screams uncontrollably while dabbing at her face with a tissue.

In the clip, another medic is seen resting her hand on the woman's shoulder.

A second woman walks over and tries to talk to the nurse, but she continues to scream inconsolably.
