Obviously we have not had all the details of this tragedy. But reality is this kind of following the protocols, triaging , category of urgency and eventually conclusion by algorithms, is an overcompensation for a system being neglected too long by successive government(s) . The end result is painted by loss of lives . One can say we are crybabies, scaremongers etc but the reality has become too apparent to be denied by this bunch of politicians . I always believe that we , doctors, always have a duty to oversee these despicable politicians and bureaucrats from harming our patients but the truth is we have only limited power to prevent disasters from happening.....,.......
