Right now the UK government has, through its own negligence, decided to put the lives of doctors and other medical staff at risk by not supplying them with the PPE that they need.
And what the means is that not only are doctors putting their own lives ta risk – which we should not be asking them to do – but that they are also putting the lives of all those they move between in hospitals at risk, and that they are also putting their families and others that they meet in the community (and yes, the go shopping like the rest of us, where they will meet people) at risk as well.
A point will be reached – and I suspect it will be very soon – where doctors will say that the balance of those risks has shifted and that it would better for them not to work than to do so. The overall risk to society will be reduced by them not seeing patients in hospital.
This is before we start to consider such thoughts as, well, doesn’t each hospital have a team of purchasing managers? And why didn’t they buy PPE? And if it is true that it is Ministers who should have been doing that then don;t we get to fire all the purchasing managers as not being needed?
