Behind Enemy Lines
NEW YORK: The Big Apple is in bad shape.
It’s the epicentre of the US fight against the corona virus outbreak. Its people are in lockdown while frontline services wage war against the pandemic.
With over eleven thousand dead, New York City accounts for around one third of all corona-related deaths in the US.
Every day, there are hundreds of new infections and deaths. The city’s hospitals are overflowing, health workers lack medical and protective equipment and morgues have run out of space.
In this intimate portrait of a city in crisis, we follow frontline workers in their battle to slow infections, save lives, and protect themselves and their families from this deadly illness.
