An American ICU nurse has detailed the heartbreaking case she dealt with in hospital recently.
Jessica wrote on a Twitter thread about the 14-year-old girl who was admitted to her facility suffering from coronavirus.
Doctors did everything they legally could to help her, however the teenager's parents allegedly refused to allow medics to put her on a ventilator.
The registered nurse wrote: "Tonight I helplessly held the hand of and stroked the hair of a beautiful 14 year old girl as she exited this world.
"She was looking forward to starting high school and eventually becoming a veterinarian. It was so senseless!
"I truly believe she could have been saved if her parents had not forbidden us from intubating her.
"A free vaccination would have prevented it all!
"This little girl was robbed of her whole life and of fulfilling all of her dreams. She had been with us 9 days and was able to communicate well until taking a turn for the worse."
Jessica explained that that wasn't the only heartbreaking patient that she treated during that same shift that was related to the anti-vaccination movement.
She wrote: "About 2 hours later we were unable to save a 25 year old mother of 1 who was 15 weeks pregnant. She had refused the vaccines because of the lies about them causing infertility and harming her baby.
"Liars killed her, her baby and robbed a 2 year old little boy of his mommy and sibling. Not to mention robbing a husband of his wife and child.
"Those were 2 of 4 deaths we had tonight with the oldest being 45 years old! It was the 1st time since late March we have lost more than 3 covid patients in a single shift."
Jessica explained how a colleague also had the tires on their car slashed while it was parked in the hospital car park on the same shift.
The registered nurse wanted the world to understand what medical professionals are dealing with on the front lines.
While they are trying to juggle the impacts of the pandemic, they are being overwhelmed by people who are refusing to believe the science related to the vaccine or the virus itself.
As a result, it's creating more problems for health services around the world and Jessica is begging people to listen to experts not random people on social media.
