A doctor has spoken out after seeing crowds of people gathered outside St. Thomas hospital in London on New Year’s Eve shouting ‘COVID is a hoax’.
Doctor ‘heartbroken’ as crowds gather outside London hospital shouting ‘COVID is a hoax’ :Dr Matthew Lee said he was ‘disgusted but mostly heartbroken’ as he filmed the scenes outside the London hospital and later posted the footage to social media site Twitter of people gathered outside the entrance to the hospital shouting. His post said “Worked the late A&E SHO shift on NYE and came out to this. Hundreds of maskless, drunk people in huge groups shouting ‘Covid is a hoax’, literally outside the building where hundreds are sick and dying.
Why do people still not realise the seriousness of this pandemic?” He continued by saying “I’m disgusted but mostly heartbroken. I wish people could see the amount of #COVID19 and death in hospitals, and the sacrifices that healthcare workers make. This week alone has been so tough. Their ignorance is hurting others. I really wish people would keep themselves safe.”
Hundreds of people supported the doctor’s post with most being angry that the crowds were not social distancing nor wearing masks. One person replied to his post saying “I bloody hope Karma bites them back, I’d never wish anyone harm ( or to get Covid) but these are the spreaders.. these are people so inane.”
