Inside a hard-hit COVID-19 ward in Houston

Healthcare workers treat patients infected with the coronavirus at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas, December 31, 2020. Located in a working-class area of north Houston, UMMC has been hit hard by the waves of cases that slammed into Texas during the summer and fall, exacting an immense physical and emotional toll on nurses such as Tanna Ingraham, who has herself overcome two bouts of COVID-19.

Duc Nguyen speaks with his wife using FaceTime on New Year's Day from inside the coronavirus unit at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas, January 1, 2021. It was not how the 33-year-old had envisioned welcoming in the new year, but he said he was grateful the UMMC had a vacant bed so he could be treated for pneumonia brought on by COVID-19. Nguyen said he was confident he would recover, but he predicted the worst days of the pandemic were ahead. "We are still in for another treat next year," he said in a raspy voice. "It's not over yet."
