An ophthalmologist, who goes by the name Dr. Glaucomflecken, is also a sketch comedian who frequently shares short sketches based on the life of a medical student.

The COVID-19 pandemic is, in the truest sense, Pandora’s box, with novel variants popping now and then, multiple waves coming without knocking, and the humongous amount of misinformation on social media. While the virus, as an organism, results in choked lungs, as a phenomenon, it leads to choked minds that cannot discern fact from fiction.

An ophthalmologist, who goes by the name Dr. Glaucomflecken, is also a sketch comedian who frequently shares short sketches based on the life of a medical student. The latest sketch that this hilarious netizen shared is based on the plot of misinformed anti-vaxxers. The sketch is set in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and showcases the scenario after the fifth wave of the coronavirus pandemic hit the unvaccinated.

Originally shared on TikTok, the video involves everything, from crying doctors to shortage of staff, from unvaccinated patients flooding the critical care unit to resiliency pizza offered by the hospital.
