The virus has taken our planet hostage, and is showing no signs of letting go anytime soon.

It only took a month for the World Health Organization to declare a global emergency...

Which was done in an attempt to combat the virus and enable countries to put in strict measures to prevent any further spread.

World leaders have been left with little choice but to bring their countries to a total stand-still...

And many have banned large and crowded events, and any travel to and from infected countries.

Hospitals around the world are buckling under the pressure...

But thankfully for them, engineers have been working on some remarkable solutions to keeping these hospitals supplied.

Hospitals in a region of Italy are already running short of ventilators...

The company is gearing up to make 100 of the chess piece-like valves per day and hand them out to medics who are trying to bring the crisis under control.

The demand for these types of valves is insanely high.

Cristian Fracassi, the founder of the startup firm Isinnova, offered his company's services after hearing about the valve shortage by word of mouth. Speaking to The Daily Mail, he said, "We were told the hospital was desperately looking for more valves. They're called Venturi valves and are impossible to find at the moment, production can't keep up with demand."

One of the biggest problems we're facing is this lack of equipment.

Healthcare workers have been struggling hugely due to a lack of PPE.

Meaning many essential workers are having to put their lives at risk.

Which is a truly horrific thing.

It's a huge failure by the powers that be.

Especially since now the USA is calling for all citizens to wear masks.

Since they're in short supply, many are making their own.

People have been hugely creative in this worthwhile pursuit.

All over the world...

People have been making masks not only for themselves, but to provide for key workers who are also in need.

And the hard work looks set to continue.

Many countries are still struggling to provide the right PPE to those who need it most, let alone the rest of the population.

But there is a problem with many mask designs.

It can feel a little bit uncomfortable or be difficult to breathe while wearing one.

And a video has gone viral this week for that exact reason.

A woman is being ridiculed online after she uploaded a clip of herself breaking down over having to wear a face mask... for forty-five minutes.  Keep scrolling to watch the clip for yourself.

The woman uploaded her emotional rant to Facebook.

via: Twitter

And during the clip, she can be heard claiming that wearing a mask stopped her from "getting enough oxygen."

Holding up the mask, the woman began by saying this:

via: Twitter

"I don't feel good. I can tell you right now I wasn't getting enough oxygen. "Look at the numbers and tell me why everybody's living in fear. "Tell me why we're putting these things on, and not being able to breathe."

She quickly became tearful.

"I just want to cry. Because you can't see people's faces, you can't make human connection, we can't hug people, we can't hold their babies." She continued: "It doesn't make sense. I'm not okay with it. Nothing about what we're doing is supported by the numbers that are out there. "I do care about my rights."

After noticing the clip, someone decided to screengrab it and upload it to Twitter...

via: Twitter

And, well, we're sure you can imagine what happened then...

She got well and truly trolled.

With many, of course, labelled her as a classic "Karen."

Others pointed out some more serious facts.

She really doesn't have a reason to be crying over this.

Others raised this point.

People truly didn't hold back.
