Government may call in retired doctors to help deal with coronavirus outbreak


And what exactly can a GP do with a patient who’s infected with COVID-19 ? Hold their hand, say sweet nothings, catch the virus and die as they are elderly and frail themselves. Or maybe invent a cure and save the world from yet another flu virus? The level of incompetence demonstrated by the authorities is beyond belief but I’m really glad it’s finally highlighted in such a clear way.
