This shocking video shows lines of ambulances waiting to deliver coronavirus patients to hospital.
It shows that the huge queues of ambulances already shown in the capital Moscow are being repeated elsewhere in the country, with this footage shot in the city of Khmimki, which is almost 20 kilometres north-west of central Moscow.
With the roads almost devoid of other traffic because of the quarantine, a motorist is able to pull into the oncoming traffic lane in order to pass the huge queue.
