COVID patients struggle in home isolation

ABC 702 The World Today, 14 September 2021

Health workers are urging people suffering with COVID symptoms at home to call an ambulance as soon as they feel they need it.

A handful of Sydney residents have died in their homes in the past few months and police have discovered people collapsed on the floor and struggling to breathe during routine welfare checks.

One recovering western Sydney resident says COVID patients are being left alone with little help.
