1/🧵 Imagine 2 people, madly in love & married 28 years, in an impossible situation, both lives on the line & separated by different hospitals. Then imagine 2 sets of #nurses & #doctors separately determined to overcome ⛰ of obstacles…

2/ Last night this is what happened…

NOTE: the family wants to share their story to offer a glimpse of love ❤️ on all levels

For 3 years, Mark took care of Sharon, his #bride, as she battled breast #cancer. It relentlessly spread to her bones. He never stopped giving.
3/ She could tell he was spent and getting sick himself. “Mark, let’s get you to the doctor!” “Not until you are well, Sharon.” He remained laser focused on her every need. As she became weaker, he took her to get admitted yesterday.

If you can help @HarvestHillsYYC Please do. They're unfairly being targeted by UCP Conservative Party Trolls & are being harassed by people who are going after their organization.
They've even gone as far as demanding Jenn retract any & all statements she made in regards to being critical of the current Alberta Government.

We are indeed dealing with a cruel & heartless government.
These EVERYDAY heroes, are the very people that are stepping up & filling the GAP that our government is refusing to fill.

The @Alberta_UCP can't see the damage that is being done to the province that I & others love so much. From Doctors to Parks, Everything is being attacked.

1/ “When we are young, we hear stories of soldiers sacrificing their lives for the countries and working at the forefront. So when a crisis like this came, I knew I had to be among the ones serving the patients,” begins Dr Divya Singh.
2/ A few months ago, Dr Singh, who is an MS in General Surgery, had moved to Djibouti, Africa, along with her husband who works with the Indian Foreign Services.

But on hearing about the COVID-19 pandemic, she decided to return to India anticipating an increased need for doctors
3/ “I returned to India in March when the number of positive cases was just about under 400. Within a week, I received a request for help from a volunteer group based in Mumbai. They required medical professionals to help with the pandemic surveillance Worli and Dharavi slums."

Gove says ‘schools are safe!’- UK Govt advice “if child develops #COVID19 symptoms at school “they must be sent home...If a child is awaiting collection, they should be moved, if possible, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door-Thread👇🏽
..depending on age of child & with appropriate adult supervision if required. Ideally, a window should be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people🙈…
If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they should use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom should be cleaned & disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.

In the last 3 days, I’ve had to walk in the shoes of the #FrontLineHeroes

And I must confess that wearing the PPE alone for just very few hours was super uncomfortable.

The struggles of the frontline workers is real o! Let me share with you some of the harsh realities

Asides from dealing with exhaustion from increased work load, the frontline workers also experience:

➡️ Adverse skin problems resulting from wearing the PPE— face masks, goggles, face shields, gloves for long hours— skin problems like Acne, irritation, infection...
And, in extreme cases, the development of ulcers, like decubitus ulcers on the skin.

➡️ Psychological injury- such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other similar conditions as a result of dealing with #COVID-19.

➡️ Contracting the Virus and worse - Death 💀

Undoubtedly we have done well to bend the #Covid Epidemic Curve.
Provided no surges/surprises we on track to seriously chart a Safe & Middle of the Road Exit Strategy
-not too rapid; invites another #COVID19 wave
-not too slow, will hurt the battered economy @DrDzul @boosulyn
The first crucial element of a COVID-19 exit strategy is massive testing.
This was reaffirmed by WHO when it stated:
a. That transmission must be controlled
b. Early case-finding, testing, isolating … is essential for stopping transmission.
The EU research group:The availability of large-scale testing…is a precondition for lifting social distancing measures in the future

#Frontline left frightened for their lives, @BorisJohnson over 40,000 dead Not a single protective gown was in national stockpile. Counting single gloves, waste bags, cleaning ept, paper towels as total figures for #PPEforNHS The Fiddled figures exposed in @BBCPanorama
What a scandal our Doctors & Nurses forced to rely on the public for Charity or source their own #PPE as they fight to save lives - aprons mate from binbags!- staff called #FrontLineHeroes by @BorisJohnson but sent to battle without armour #PPEforNHS
Nearly a 100 hospital workers have died from #COVID19 , they didn’t have to & its a lie for our Govt to say they didn’t know a pandemic was coming & has been predicted for over a decade

Found this on Facebook❤️This week, teachers across the country will go into schools where they will interact with children of #FrontLineHeroes , who are highly exposed to COVID-19. They will not be given face masks or protective clothing, probably won't even be given hand gel. Image
They won't get free coffee, half price pizza, or special shopping hours. They will perform their jobs in ways they have never done before and they will do it with a smile on their faces, so that the children in their care don't know how scared they are: scared for those children
scared for their own; scared of being responsible for taking the virus home to loved ones. Thank you to all Teachers, Teaching Assistants & anyone else heading into a school this week to keep it running so that our #NHS & carers can take care of the sick and the vulnerable

I'm a #LatinX physician, taking care of #LatinX patients with #COVID19.

I've been so surprised at how people are surprised by data showing #COVID19 is disproportionately affecting marginalized communities that till now I didn't know how to respond.

Some thoughts:

2/The implications of these #disparities run far deeper than simple differences in rates of morbidity and mortality. I applaud all of those shedding light on these #inequities, but we need action, and we need it now. @valstonemd @drlouiseivers #COVID19 #SDOH
3/A majority of our #EssentialWorkers, our #FrontLineHeroes, come from minority communities; these are the individuals putting themselves at risk to do the invisible work without which our society would collapse. @JoiaMukherjee #COVID19

Going into the #EasterWeekend our #FrontlineHeroes are making personal sacrifices to help ensure our lives can carry on. We must help them, stay home, protect our NHS and save lives and then many more people will be able to celebrate many more Easters to come #StayHomeSaveLives
I also wanted to address reports I have been given £10,000 to work from home. This is not true. Some money has been made available to purchase office & computer equipment so my staff can deal with an unprecedented levels of casework quickly, safely & effectively from home.
I estimate I'll spend about about £1000 in total across six staff & me. Everything will be subject to receipts & reporting.

These are extraordinary times, and we’ve seen Saskatchewan people step up in extraordinary ways.

Let's show these frontline heroes some love by sending them a message of thanks.

#skpoli #COVID19SK #FrontLineHeroes Image
Health care workers.

Childcare workers and cleaners, clerks and cashiers.

Postal workers, truckers and delivery drivers.

These and so many other frontline heroes have stepped up in so many ways, putting themselves at risk to make all of us safer.
Maybe you’re one of these #frontlineheroes. Or a close friend or family member is.

To all of them — all of you — I want to say THANK YOU for keeping Saskatchewan people safe.

I’ve always been proud of my brother for his commitment and dedication to science and medicine. It had shown through his work over the years of training, lab research and in the operating room. But I’ve never been prouder of him & ironically more worried for him than these days Image
He is just one of the thousands of doctors, surgeons, nurses and others fighting on the frontlines, operating on patients, saving lives and curing the sick. So to all of those - regardless of where you are in our healthcare system - working long hours in hospitals
and at times without regard for your own safety to heal others... THANK YOU. Stay safe, Stay Healthy! #COVID19 #FrontLineHeroes
