DAUK in the Evening Standard: doctors could leave profession over fears for safety

“Over the past five weeks, we have witnessed a near exponential growth in the number of new Covid-19 cases, reaching almost every country, territory and area.

“In the next few days we will reach one million confirmed Covid-19 cases and 50,000 deaths.”

Governments around the world have been tackling the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators by turning to alternative manufacturers and suppliers for the essential equipment.

Dr Rinesh Parmar, the chair of the Doctors’ Association UK warned some doctors in the UK could leave their profession because they feel there is a “widespread lack” of protective equipment.
