We are putting too much attention to coronavirus patients as if there were no other deadly diseases.
One is rushed to hospital for pneumonia complications and what you hear is, ” You have to wait for 24hours for covid-19 results to come out.” Before the 24hours are over, we loose our loved ones just in the name of waiting for the results.
Cancer is another disease that is taking those we love without mercy. But all the attention has been taken to covid.
Just the other day, a man had an accident and was rushed to a nearby hospital. The doctors said they cannot attend to him before he was tested for covid. Seriously, a man who needed emergency care to wait for 24 hours? This isn’t right at all. After some hours, he was no more.
It is my prayer that the doctors, nurses and those in health care should come up with ways to mitigate death of patients whose lives could have been saved if only they were given the right attention at the right time.
Most people are dying not because of covid 19 but of other deadly diseases that needed more attention.
How can a person who has been stabbed wait to be tested coronavirus when the knife is still in his body. To me this is really inhuman.
I understand strongly that we need to care for our nurses and doctors and I appreciate the effort they are putting in, but let us not forget there other more deadly situations than just having the coronavirus!
