  1. 1) Work without protective gear, get infected, become a patient instead of a doctor.

    2) Protest lack of protective gear, get beaten and locked up. No longer a doctor, but not a patient.

    3) *Give the fucking doctors PPE, keep them on the front lines helping the sick.*

    Obviously option 3 is the ridiculous one, right?

  2. that seems counterproductive, somehow.

  3. Medical people globally are pissed at being played by their governments. Healthcare workers know that governments plan for Pandemics and have PPE in secured stockpiles which is not being used.

    Jared making the statement “this is our (Trump’s) stockpile IMHO is very telling that governments are hording their stockpiles.

    Why, IDK and I refuse to go down conspiracy rabbit holes.

  5. Enable medical professionals, so they in turn can save lives. This concept continues to escape nations.

  6. Beatings will continue until morale improves.

  7. >Following the arrests, the Young Doctors Association chief announced a boycott of young doctors’ services from government hospitals. “We suspend all our services following the high-handedness of police,” Achakzai said in an emergency press conference.

    From another article.

  8. That will get em back to work I’m sure of it… /s

  9. Can you imagine if soldiers went “nope. Not gonna hold this front unless you get us our gas masks”. Well they probably did, quite a bit actually.
