The head of the Department of Emergency Situations of Ioannina University Hospital, Thanassis Kitsakos, criticized the government for the way it manages the coronavirus pandemic through ESA.
“Me and my department know what awaits us and keep Thermobiles, we will fall FIGHTING for our fellow humans, only I beg you when everything is over CLOSE those who killed us. THANKS”, mentions the last paragraph of his post on facebook.
The whole post of the doctor is as follows:
«Covid19 – What Do We Do?
After 1 month of being in the fire with me and my department I felt that my voice should be heard and those in charge should leave the wishes and start correcting and solving problems while it is still time.
Background: 1.5 months ago without being a specialist in infectious diseases and while the WHO was giving low risk I realized with my colleagues that IOS would come to our country. Although the trips were allowed, we realized early on that the game was lost and started the first steps to shield my department (training uniforms etc.) Fortunately the management listened to us and provided us with material (at least we ordered) which is now clearly inadequate to other sanitary formations they did not have. Starting the first outbreaks in Europe by launching the business plan against my department's biological threats and again thanks to the support of the Administration, we found light years ahead as we were the only Reference Hospital that did not contaminate its staff and patients (of course).
Today's Crisis Management Center: Well-respected scientists rightly inform the world about the disease, rightly take action against dispersal with this country's Health System There is no central one to keep it up. So many Infectious Diseases cannot see that the Health System and the country in general will mourn Victims.
In more detail: To date EODY commands the physician to handle COVID19 case without a cap – this doctor will become infected at first contact with COVID19 and will die in the hospital for the next 3-4 days until he bends himself. In a letter to me, I pointed it out to EODY 15 days ago the instructions have not changed. To this day, EODY commands in my department, as in all other TECs in the country, look at suspicious cases that cough with simple masks (like those on the road). High-protection masks are almost non-existent and we store them for snacks / tubing. Wise Infectious Diseases gave these instructions when you look at the pictures from the hospitals of China Spain Spain Italy. In short, the Health System should not fall because people will die. How Do Infectious Diseases Affect the Health System? My question will probably be INDEPENDENT and in the end we will be talking about HERO doctors and Nurses and not inadequate CENTRAL DIRECTIONS. Of course, the coronavirus will be to blame, not the responsible infectologists at the decision centers. Me and my department know what awaits us and hold Thermopiles, we will fall FIGHTING for our fellow humans, only I beg you when everything is over CHECK those who killed us. THANKS”.
