How will you tell your patients to keep their distance and wash their mouth, nose and chin covers frequently at the time of the pandemic? ” They said.
From Amra, they felt that the Faculty “must adhere tightly to protocols, with a strong decline in line with both students and the general public. “This unfortunate act should be punished by the authorities, but above all, what should be very clear is that our profession, and especially the profession of all healthcare professionals over the past year, is far from these disgusting images.” Additional.
And they highlighted the efforts of healthcare professionals during the pandemic: “Work 24/7 piecemeal, put yourself at first risk to save your own life in many cases, devote most and all to professionalism many times without adequate biosecurity conditions.
