Hundreds of maskless, drunk people in large groups shouting "Covid is a Hoax" are literally standing in front of the building where hundreds are sick and dying.
"Why are people still not realizing the gravity of this pandemic?"
He later added, “I am disgusted, but mostly heartbroken. I wish people could see the amount of Covid-19 (cases) and deaths in hospitals, and the sacrifices that healthcare workers make.
& # 39; This week alone was so tough. Your ignorance hurts others. I really wish people would protect themselves. & # 39;
His footage sparked outrage online, and countless Britons rushed to condemn Covid's conspiracy theorists.
Piers Morgan informed Dr. Lee's clip and wrote: “This is so gross. These idiots put Britain to shame. & # 39;

Mr Johnson spoke of self-isolation on April 3 – just days before he was taken to hospital with Covid (left). After he was released, he posted a video message from # 10 (right).
He later added, “I'm still bubbling over it. If it's a joke, we'll take all these fools to the Covid ward without PPE.
"See how brave they feel when faced with the reality of people suffocating."
Pediatrician Sarah Hallett wrote: "And ironically, as NHS staff, ironically, if any of them needed our help (maybe intubation and ventilation, for example) we would do it right away."
Another added: "I would love to drag you around the hospital and go from ward to ward to show you the havoc Covid is causing.

The daily case count in the UK is up 63 percent per week from 32,275 last Friday, meaning an astonishing 253,720 people have received positive test results as of Monday this week.
And 613 more people have died from the virus – including an eight-year-old child – and the official death toll is 74,125. The eight-year-old died in England on December 30 and had other health problems, the NHS said.
Health ministry records show 23,823 people were hospitalized with the virus as of December 28, the latest update.

The death toll was unpredictable this week after a string of public holidays that hospitals don't keep recording them as reliably. Death certificates were lower than usual over the long Christmas weekend, falling to 230 deaths on Boxing Day, then higher than expected by midweek and rising to 981 on Wednesday December 30th. The weekly average is 554 deaths per day.
Coronavirus infections have spiked over the Christmas holidays, with the toughest lockdown measures for most of the country suspended until Boxing Day or even later, allowing thousands of families to mingle on December 25.
The cases are being driven by the new superinfectious variant of the coronavirus that emerged in the southeast and has since spread across the country.
And with London, Kent and Essex now at the epicenter of England's second wave – two-thirds of today's cases (33,573) were from these three regions alone – the pressure on hospitals in the region is mounting, and some are saying they are are already in "disaster mode". even dealing with admissions from a week or two ago when the cases were lower.
London has once again become the center of the crisis in England. 15,089 of the cases confirmed today have been diagnosed in the capital, and local hospitals report that their wards are bursting at the seams.
The second worst hit was the southeast, where a further 10,844 cases were confirmed today, followed by the east of England with 7,640.
It was in these regions that the new variant emerged, which is possibly 56 percent more contagious and spreads so quickly that normal blocking measures do not work, and in which it now accounts for the majority of infections.
In the other regions, where the new variant does not seem to have gained a foothold, the infections are significantly lower, possibly because they were already blocked at the time they developed.

For the Northwest, 5,164 cases were announced today, of which 3,079 in the East Midlands, 2,860 in the West Midlands, 2,175 in Yorkshire and Humber, 2,104 in the Southwest and 1,340 in the Northeast.
So far, there is no evidence that the UK's second wave is slowing or likely to end anytime soon.
Although the number of infections and hospital admissions fell during the November national lockdown, they rose again when the restrictions were lifted.
The animal system appears to have worked in the north of England, which was the focus of the outbreak in the fall, but it came too late in the southeast, east and London, where cases got out of hand over Christmas.
Widespread rules were only introduced this week. As of Wednesday, December 30, a total of 44 million people had been made Tier 4 and the rest of the country except the remote Isles of Scilly Tier 3.
It will now take two or three weeks for these measures to take effect and, if they work, reduce the transmission of the virus.
But even if the lockdown rules work and reduce infection rates, hospitals will still have to deal with the consequences of people who have already caught Covid-19. It may take two to three weeks for you to be hospitalized.
A doctor in London has warned that coronavirus patients in NHS intensive care units are already “competing” for ventilators to keep them alive.
Dr. Megan Smith of Guy & # 39; s and St Thomas & # 39; Hospital Trust in the capital said medical professionals are faced with "dire" decisions as they have to decide which patients will have access to life-saving treatment for Covid-19 and which Not.
And she warned that an expected surge in patients triggered by people mingling with family and friends over Christmas has not even begun. The situation is likely to worsen later this month and in February.
Official NHS figures show intensive care units across the country are facing more problems this winter, despite an average of 743 extra beds being made available per day to cope with Covid patients.
Data from NHS England shows 743 critical care beds were available in the last week of December than the same week of 2019 – 4,394 versus 3,651.
In the same week, an average of 828 patients were in intensive care – 3,340 up from 2,512 in December 2019 – suggesting that the Covid-19 strain is larger than the hospitals prepared. Many of the rollaway beds are in London – 253 of them – but even that wasn't enough to stave off the surge in coronavirus patients.
