Nearly 1,300 Nebraskans have died from COVID-19. That number comprises more than single moments. It is weeks watching terrifying infection rates climb higher and higher, days watching a person require more machines to stay alive, hours spent telling family members that their husband, wife, mother or grandfather is going to die. Doctors and nurses work longer and more often just to feel themselves lose control after months fighting this virus every day. Now hospital staff are begging people to listen: Nebraska is out of time.
