The two sides of Cancer during Coronavirus
A disturbing headline. 250,000 lives condemned because they couldn’t get tested/their treatment during the Coronavirus pandemic. More families will be deprived of loved ones. Some will never recover. Questions will always be asked
‘with Nightingale Hospitals, why didn’t my …….. get their test/treatment in hospital? or why wasn’t I given the choice to go ahead with my treatment and the threat of Coronavirus in hospital or holdout and risk the spread – it’s my life, my choice?’
Heart wrenching for all involved. Decision makers will have to bear the weight of their decisions going forward. This, for me was the worst side of Coronavirus reported in the Sunday papers.
Below was an innovative feature alongside the one above which for me shows the best face of cancer during this period. Medical professionals thinking outside the box to treating reassure their patients.
Whatever your view, one thing is for sure, a lot of long lasting pain will be caused by this pandemic which we don’t event realise the full extent of yet.
