I couldn’t believe it when I read that there have been 19 attacks on paramedics this year already; that’s more than one a week.
Not only do they have to worry about the many diseases they could potentially contract on the job, they also have to worry about becoming victims of crime, while doing so.
I thought we would’ve become a lot more appreciative of healthcare workers during this time of Corona.
Instead their vehicles are being stoned and they are being held up at gunpoint.
Why are parents allowing their gangster sons to do this?
Many medics now refuse to work.
But in Tafelsig (which has been classified a dangerous area for medics), a special project was started to service the community with a dedicated and willing paramedics service.
Two of the medics on the team were the latest victims of violence recently.
How is it that we are still allowing this?
Why are witnesses remaining silent?
You are literally reducing your own chance of survival, should you ever require emergency medical care.
The time to rat these cowards out have long come and gone.
