Reblog: In Memoriam: Healthcare Workers Who have died of COVID-19

Medscape has published a list of healthcare workers who lost their lives, while caring for patients with COVID-19. Amidst a global shortage of  appropriate protective gears, the risk of infection is very high for those on the frontline fighting coronavirus.  

I decided to republish this list on my blog, out of respect to my collaegues around the globe, as not many have access to the original article. I believe it is subscription only. 

Please join me in honouring their names  by sharing this post.  

RIP heroes

Twitter Thread: Italy and the Coronavirus

I hardly publish any medically related stuff on this site, however I find this testimony by Italian doctor Daniele Macchini, from the front lines of treating the coronavirus outbreak, important to document. It is translated Epidemiologist Silvia Stringhini .

As a Doctor, I find Dr Macchini’s testimony very distressing. I really hope the authorities here in UK read and reflect. Britain could face the same scenario.

 

 

And another warning

Jonathan Spyer

Jerusalem Post, 6/3

Russia’s desire to woo Turkey from the west likely to prevent all out Turkey-Syria War

Clashes between Turkish and Syrian regime forces in north west Syria are ongoing.  For the first time in the Syrian civil war, the forces of two governments are engaged in prolonged clashes on the ground. The killing of at least 30 Turkish soldiers in what was almost certainly a Russian air attack in Idlib Province on February 27 was a dramatic escalation and has left the Turkish public angry and shaken.

The latest fighting – around the strategic town of Saraqib – has been intense and bloody.  75 opposition fighters and 40 regime fighters were killed in 24 hours of brutal combat around Saraqib on March 2-3.

But is an all out Turkey-Syria war now inevitable? Despite the dramatic recent events, it is not.

To understand why, it is important to grasp…
