Amrutha Sangeeth, a housewife, shows a picture on her phone of her mother Sathy Vasudevan, 64, also a housewife, who died due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as she poses for a photograph, on the outskirts of Kochi, India, September 25, 2020. "My mother was suffering from a liver disease and was bed ridden," said Sangeeth. "A delay in the test result was one of the reasons she died. We could not move easily as six other family members got infected and were later hospitalised. It was really tough for my younger sister to arrange for last rites etc. as neighbours stayed away and were afraid of contracting the virus." REUTERS/Sivaram V SEARCH "COVID DEATHS" FOR THIS STORY.

The scene inside United Memorial Medical Center in Houston has become all too familiar: Overwhelmed medical staff fighting to curb the wave of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients that come through the hospital's doors every day. While in earlier pandemic hot spots like New York the medical emergency has subsided, Texas is among the many U.S. states battling a resurgence of the virus that is straining their healthcare systems. Dr. Joseph Varon, the chief medical officer of United Memorial Medical Center (UMMC,) said he is afraid he will soon face a dilemma many doctors elsewhere said they confronted earlier in the pandemic: Deciding who to save. "I'm afraid that at some point in time I'm going have to make some very serious decisions," he told Reuters in an interview. "I'm starting to get the idea that I cannot save everybody." Varon, 58, is overseeing the hospital's unit dedicated to COVID-19 patients, where he said he tends to an average of 40 people a day. He said he signed more death certificates in the last week than at any point in his career. REUTERS/Callaghan O'Hare TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SEARCH "COVID-19 HOUSTON VARON" FOR THIS STORY.

"The hardest moments have actually been separating families from patients, there is a no-visitor policy now and taking people away from their loved ones is very challenging," Bontempo said. "I'm used to treating sick patients. I treat sick patients all the time. It's very different knowing that the patient you are treating, is actually a risk to you as well. That's the main difference here. No one who works in hospitals is afraid of treating sick people. Just want to keep staff safe and the patients safe at the same time."

Noella Kavira Kitakya, 26, holding 16-month-old Kambale Eloge, whose mother died of Ebola, talks to Arlette Kavugho, 40, mother of six, in the courtyard of United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) creche for children whose families are suspected or confirmed Ebola cases, next to an Ebola treatment centre (ETC) in Katwa, near Butembo, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, October 2, 2019. Both women are Ebola survivors who now work as caregivers. Kavira survived Ebola last June with her two brothers but their mother and close family members succumbed to the virus. "I am often afraid to relapse but I was reassured that once victorious, there is no risk," she said. "I was treated effectively and it allowed me to heal. Others did not have the same luck," she added. "It is sad to see children becoming orphans because of Ebola." REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "EBOLA ZOHRA" FOR THIS STORY.

"It is also our fault, people throw garbage and plastic everywhere, they don't understand this is polluting," he says, adding that many plant varieties in the lake had already vanished. "Fish used to live, eat and lay their eggs amongst these plants. Now there are no plants, so no fish," he says. "We are afraid that someday the fish will disappear or migrate forever."
