even pleading with the public to think twice before calling. because the simply on enough staff to cover the workload south central ambulance services declared a critical incident g. 2 extreme precious across our services, our staff and volunteers are working extremely hard to respond to cause, but the volume is overwhelming. there are absolutely situations where people waiting many, many hours, both to get into the hospital. and then once they've been in the hospital waiting to see a doctor course, it has a detrimental effect on anybody who's waiting for hours either in london. so sitting in an emergency department and nobody working in those services wants to see that happens. but there is a huge amount of pressure on there. now, just at the moment, meanwhile, ambulances are being forced to stay in cues for hours outside hospitals, which are struggling to cope themselves with the demand for beds. a number of medics of posted pictures like these on social media, one paramedic demanding urgent action after showing 25 ambulance crews waiting to
6:08 pm
enter an emergency department adding. it's not even winter yet. while earlier this month, the patient died off the waiting more than 5 hours in the back of an ambulance. we are right on the edge and it is the middle of october. it would require an incredible amount of light for us not to find ourselves in the midst of a profound crisis. over the next 3 months, the u. k. governments put the country on something akin to a war footing to deal with the coven cases, and also get ready for that crucial winter flu season. troops have been trained to dr. ambulances. some 4000 of them are on stand by to help the n h. s. cope with the winter season, early, the british defense secretary said soldiers are also ready to assist with administering vaccines, testing for covert and other general support in hospitals. this is why new daily cove cases in the u. k skyrocketed in july, they've remained high ever since. and doctors fear that those numbers combined with the flu season could overwhelm the health system. and it just keeps also want the prime minister to implement. it's more stringent plan
