The fifth wave of Covid-19 progresses uncontrollably in the Canary Islands, despite the vaccination campaign. This Wednesday, July 28, some 1,448,898 people have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine in the Islands, representing 73.89 percent of the target population, which has increased by include in National Vaccination Strategy against COVID-19 to the population over 12 years of age.
Domingo Gonzalez, intensivist physician of the Insular Maternal and Child Hospital Complex has published a photo on his social networks as a reflection in which the health personnel of the aforementioned hospital are shown fighting to save the life of a young woman, admitted by Covid-19.
Accompanying the photo has published a text that has been made viral:
«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 of the year 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 stops impacting 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 much more means, we have a vaccine and we are already vaccinated, we have fewer risks, what impresses me the most is that Younger patients, previously healthy, are admitted to us who, because they are not immunized and as a result of the impressive increase in infections from 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 !! “
