Anxiety, Psychological health and Staff shortages: warnings in the medical frontline

The Rhone Alpes-Auvergne area which includes France’s second town Lyon has become the most affected region of the nation. Euronews had access to an intensive care unit in town, where employees talked up about their anxieties as well as also the day to day struggles.
