Maria Santomil, 34, has worked at St. Mary’s Hospital in London since July 2014.

“We are exhausted; mentally exhausted.”

The phrase repeats it several times MarSantomil was going, a Spanish nurse who works in the intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

Since the first COVID-19 cases appeared in the UK, Santomil has been on the front lines of the battle against a pandemic that has heavily stressed the British Public Health Service (NHS), as well as to many other healthcare systems in the world.

Now, with the appearance of the new variant Omicron – which forced England to re-impose restrictive measures such as the use of masks or PCR tests for travelers – the situation has become complicated again in a place where, to date, almost 250 cases of this strain have been reported.
