Actually not his job... Screaming out to public in. A panic instead of going straight to govs office.... That gov is and has been proactive from get go...everytime a Dr from a hospital pulls that crap it creates a panic in public for anyone to go to the hospital.. That Dr should have remembered his hypocratic oath n kept cool yet forcefully gone straight to govs office... Am sure another place will take him specially now but this bs into press has to cease

not the 1%

This is why whistle blower laws need to exist and be applied. It isn't hard to accept people were not ready. A lot of things drop in readiness until in panic they are needed again. Health organisations around the world have suddenly realised poor planing has placed them in a poor position to react to a pandemic. This goes beyond local politics in each nation as all nations have been affected.

Is that actually him? Why is he using a $2 stethoscope? Those models are utterly crap, used only for taking a blood pressure and even drugs companies give out half decent ones free! Something odd there. Unless he was lacking a stethoscope to look all doctory and someone threw him one off the nearest crash trolley (they usually linger on crash trolleys as they're so cheap and crap no doctor will nick them if they've left theirs at home). Anyhoos, Yeh, this is management ego over proper management.

We probably need more information. Without that I have no idea what to believe.

Yea, that makes no sense. Fire the very type of person we so desperately need at the moment, because he spoke out. Just dumb.
