60 Minutes cameras enter the Red Zone of the Royal Melbourne Hospital where doctors and nurses are on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.
The Red Zone
It’s an enormous relief to know it’s there, but it’s also a place you want to do everything you can to avoid. The so-called Red Zone at the Royal Melbourne Hospital is where extraordinary battles against COVID-19 are being fought day and night. In the deadliest week of the virus so far in Australia, 60 Minutes’ cameras have been given special access to the hospital’s Coronavirus wards to show the sombre reality of a disease that for many people is still difficult to fully comprehend. Tom Steinfort’s confronting report reveals not only how dangerous COVID is, but also the incredible bravery of the doctors and nurses on the frontline of this medical war as they fight to save the lives of their patients.
