Although a doctor myself, I have not actually been on an ITU covid floor, but many of my friends, similar to your post describe very sad scenes indeed. The most heart-wrenching aspect for me seems to be that people are taking their last breaths on their own, with their loved ones not allowed near, in isolation or sick themselves. I am not sure how I could cope with that, in any of the positions – as the patient, as the primary carer in ITU, or a loved one who can’t get near.
I hope you are coping through this and you find moments away from the covid floor for much needed rest.
