The recent ‘surge’ of COVID-19 is putting hospitals and health care workers in an ‘unsustainable’ position, they say in a letter to Gov. Doug Ducey.
Shut up and save us.
That’s the message we have for health care workers.
If I was one of them I’d be tempted to respond, “Fine, then save yourselves … jerks.”
More than 1,000 physicians, nurses, caregivers and others have signed an open letter to Gov. Doug Ducey, health care leaders and state and county officials asking for immediate action to help combat the latest omicron surge of COVID-19 cases in Arizona.
