The Canarian intensivist doctor Domingo González has shared on his social networks a photograph in which he can see this toilet and his colleagues from behind “Fighting for the life of a seriously ill young woman” from COVID-19. With this message, the doctor wants to warn the deniers of the “impact” that the coronavirus continues to have on the Islands’ hospitals.
Likewise, it should be remembered that yesterday DIARIO DE AVISOS echoed the letter from a Tenerife health worker “to those who go through everything”, fed up with those who break the rules. And today, this medium has also published a message from a Canarian nurse who warns that “the hospital is occupied by deniers who have decided not to get vaccinated.”
Below you can read the full message that the intensivist has published:
This photo was taken today in the intensive care unit where I work as an Intensive Care Physician.
Scene that I have been seeing since March 20, when the first patient with bilateral pneumonia due to COVID19 was admitted. And it is not because I have seen it so many times that it ceases to impress me, even after more than 30 years in the profession.
Although there have been many changes compared to the first time, as we know much more about the disease, we feel safer, we have many more means, we have a vaccine and we are already vaccinated, we have fewer risks, what impresses me the most is that they enter us Younger patients, previously healthy, who, due to not being immunized and as a consequence of the impressive increase in infections of this fifth wave, caused by the enormous irresponsibility on the part of our community, are seeing their short and valuable lives in danger.
And I still do not understand some comments and criticisms of the taking of drastic measures to stop this wave of infections. Some of these comments vehemently demand that parties, mass events, free movement and a long etcetera be held.
I post this photo of today, in which my colleagues fight, for hours, wearing EPIS, for the life of a very seriously ill young woman.
With this act I want to call to reflection those who do not respect the rules of prevention, those who do not believe or those who assume that things are not going with them so that they can help us save lives, maybe even theirs or their lives. family and friends, before we get to the uvi, in what could already be late.
Please help us save lives !!
Domingo González, Canarian Intensive Care Physician
