Why is the mortality so high in Hubei? Academician Li Lanjuan: shortage of medical resources
In other parts of the country, many doctors have to serve several patients. In Hubei and Wuhan, a doctor has to care for many patients, so the medical staff are very hard indeed. In addition, this period of time happens to be the peak period of all the infected people. All of a sudden, the number of patients increases, and the shortage of medical resources and other problems are also shown.
