  1. A lot of doctors are misinformed in the most amount of fear comes right out of the hospitals I got two kids at work and emergency 60 nurses didn’t show up for a shift 60 but it still 1% of people that die just one percent and that comes from the world health organization

  2. There should be a law against over 8 hour shifts for these doctors and nurses…I make mistakes after 8 hours I’m sure most of them can also

  3. You should press very hard all around and make sure there is no leaking of air when you put your N95 mask on your face. Be safe and take care!

  4. I worked security in a psychiatric hospital before. Felt like going into a war zone every morning. I quit after 17 months on the job.

  5. These are the guys you need to give medal of honour to this year. On second note, stop spending so much on military!!!

  6. They deleted my comment last night (the LYING SAPS)! Wake up! Don’t y’all find it strange that they are locking up the whole fricking world over a virus that has SARS characteristics and HIV capacity?! All this? Why is medicine allowing this lie to go this far? This is not how these assessments, diagnoses and treatments are supposed to be! People aren’t isolated for a fever! Is this jerk-off a REAL CLINICIAN!?! “Wow is me!” That’s the damned job that all who heed that call are signed up for! Watch your back people…it’s about to go down! Turn to the Most High God before it’s too late to trade up. Don’t you find it strange the ALL of even the “stars” and entertainment industry is in on this facade? The narrative is all about compliance, staying safe, wearing masks, toilet paper and vaccines!? Stop being docile! Wake up!

  7. I pray for this doctor and every health care worker. May God Almighty gives them the strength, wisdom, knowledge and divine protection they need daily. In Jesus’ Name.

  8. Stay strong Matthew Bai, and even though it’s tough to be away from the wife and child, it’s the right thing to do ♥

  13. And to think these are the Americans getting physically and verbally attacked for "starting this." Asian Americans do not deserve this hate.

  14. I’m sorry for what you have to go through every day but you are helping save lives. Will pray for your safety.

  15. Fake. These people will do anything for attention and likes. Look at me I’m helping by doing my job I signed up for.

  16. If only your government took it serious when the W.H.O. released the information on Jan. 20th after China released the Gnome on Jan. 12. Lots of time to listen to the professionals, but know, Trump has such the Bigglyist Brain, eh?

  17. Massive thank you to all the honest, dedicated, hardworking, selfless, doctors and professionals…especially during times like this.
