A woman is on a ventilator in the ICU in Dr. Lamas' hospital, infected with the coronavirus and struggling for life. Her husband is there with her, keeping her company as she fights for breath, as a ventilator pumps oxygen into her lungs. He has placed his hand on his wife's leg, to let her know he is with her, to let her know she is loved.
