Sumary of A nurse's viral video of beeping ICU alarms persuaded unvaccinated people to get the shot — take a look:
- A nurse’s viral video featured the overwhelming sounds of a packed ICU. Rice was contacted by the California Department of Health to use her video as a statewide PSA.
- Insider spoke with two people who got vaccinated after watching the viral video.
- A recent viral TikTok starts with a question: “Did you guys know that COVID has a sound?
- “Mae Rice, a travel intensive-care-unit nurse, seated for a rare moment during her overnight shift, stares into the camera before the screen goes black.
- These alarms go off when a vital sign has reached a critical limit, the overlaid text explains.
- The video, posted under Rice’s handle, @nurse_sushi, initially doesn’t seem remarkable in the sea of COVID-19 content on TikTok.
- Some of the TikTok commenters affected enough by the video’s emotional edge to seek out vaccinations shared their thoughts with Insider.
- “Healthcare workers on TikTok, usually they’re in their house, and they’re just getting off a really long shift, and they’re really tired,” Draissi said.
