Even Heroes Can Use Some Help

Even Heroes Can Use Some Help

While for some, like the elderly and chronically ill, COVID 19 presents a significant personal risk, there is a group of people that by getting ill can put us all in danger!


Doctors, Nurses, Caregivers and other healthcare workers are at the frontline of fighting the for hours on end, while putting their own personal health at risk.


In early February, the news about the death of Li Wenliang, the Chinese doctor who tried to warn others about the virus’ outbreak, struck grief around the world. But he was not the only healthcare worker who lost his life in the fight against COVID-19. More than 3,300 healthcare workers were infected in China alone, and at least 22 died. We are seeing these figures constantly on the rise as healthcare workers from Italy, Spain, USA and many other countries are unfortunately exposed and end up catching the virus.


It’s true that healthcare workers receive protective gear, but the current global stocks of surgical masks and protective gear are running low and, in some countries, healthcare workers are left exposed.


These are the times in which we, patients, relatives of those currently working in the hospitals, or ones who might be in need for medical care in the future, must take responsibility, show solidarity with care givers and do what we can to protect them. We must consider their safety, just as they consider ours:


  • Not every sore throat is a reason to rush to the hospital - We should think if our visit to the hospital or clinic is really necessary before going. Doctors need to use their time to care for urgent cases. Avoid visiting hospitalised family members or friends to reduce the risk of carrying infections in or out of the hospital and create an even greater workload on already over-worked care providers.
  • Protection is key - if you have to visit the hospital, take extra precautions – wear a mask and gloves; maintain social distance from other patients; wash your hands with water and soap as frequently as possible and for at least 20 seconds each time; cough or sneeze towards your elbow; and most importantly - make sure the medical staff does the same before attending to you.
  • Be considerate with use of masks – hospitals in many countries are experiencing a shortage in equipment needed for their medical staff members. While masks can help prevent from spreading or contracting the virus, medical teams and hospitals the world over are struggling to find supplies, so people should only use masks if they feel sick and try to minimise the unnecessary use of masks.
  • Be patient – Remember you are not the only patient and perhaps others are in greater need of care. As the numbers of people diagnosed with COVID-19 surge, hospitals are becoming over-populated and healthcare workers over-worked. Try to show patience and understanding if things take longer, and if caregivers can’t be as available to you as you would want – they are doing the best they can.

Protecting healthcare workers should be one of our top priorities in the fight against COVID-19. As more care givers are infected, there are fewer working hands to treat patients in need and the chances increase that more people will eventually die.
