zReportage.com Story of the Week #801: TUESDAY September 14, 2021: 'THE WAR ZONE' 12 Hours In A Florida COVID-19 ICU: On this ward at BayCare's Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater Florida, nurses are overwhelmed by the number of new, desperate cases. From mid-July through August, 43 people died of COVID-19 at the Hospital. More than 75 percent of them were unvaccinated. BayCare allowed award winning Tampa Bay Times reporter Lane DeGregory and photographer John Pendygraft to shadow a nursing supervisor through a 12-hour shift. Trauma nurse Jennifer Tellone has started calling it 'The War Zone.' Like most of the nurses, Jen will drive home in silence. Her husband doesn't understand why she's putting herself through this. But this job is what she does. And who she is. She can't walk away. Not now. Welcome to 'THE WAR ZONE' 12 Hours In A Florida COVID-19 ICU
