The chilling scene, captured by a woman who claims to be a nurse, was posted on the country’s social media network today but quickly censored.
Dozens of videos posted online appear show people lying in the street after collapsing where they stood as they walked through the streets of Wuhan.
MailOnline has been unable to verify the videos, which have been widely circulated.
In a post, the self-proclaimed medical worker described how patients were being sent in non-stop without any quarantine measures, warning that ‘everyone will end up being infected and dying’.
The now-removed video was shared onto Weibo, the Chinese equivalent to Twitter, by a user known as ‘magic girl Xiao Xi‘.
It was believed to be filmed at the Wuhan Red Cross Hospital, one of the facilities appointed by the government to receive suspected and diagnosed coronavirus patients.
According to a version re-posted on Twitter, dead bodies covered in white sheets were seen being left to lie in a hospital corridor, crammed with medical workers and patients.
A woman, believed to be the blogger, can be heard saying from behind the camera: ‘Three corpses, [they] have been lying here all morning. Some of them died in the wee hours. Nobody has come to deal with [them] yet.
‘And doctors, nurses and patients, they all work in such an environment. This is what is going on in a designated hospital. Not a single person is here to manage.’
She went on to complain about the fact that even the executives of the hospital could not resolve the issue.
In addition to the clip, the blogger wrote a desperate post, begging the public ‘to save the people of Wuhan’.
In the post, the self-proclaimed nurse accused hospitals of covering up the truth of the epidemic, claiming that doctors were refusing to issue formal diagnoses to coronavirus patients in order to keep the number of confirmed cases at a lower level.
She said that her husband had had a fever for eight days and been found to have an infection in the lungs, but no hospitals were willing to receive him.
Furthermore, all of the hospitals refused to provide her husband with appropriated virus scans or give him an official diagnosis, she claimed.
The post then claimed that the local hospitals were seriously overrun and the medics were forced to work day and night.
MailOnline has reached out to the blogger for further comments.
