ICU nurse, Jang Wok-Soon told the BBC: “The hardest thing is communicating.

“It makes you feel more anxious because of it.

“There is fear here.

“But I like to just think of them as our patients.

“And when you think of it that way, it’s not that scary.”

BBC Seoul correspondent, Laura Bicker, said: “It is, they tell me, incredibly heavy so that takes a toll during the shift.”


In the hospital there is a red line between the infected and uninfected area.

Bicker explains: “This red line is sacred, do not cross it without complete disinfection afterwards.”

In South Korea 4,528 people have recovered from coronavirus and there have been 139 deaths.
