You all have to see this: As coronavirus fears grow, doctors and nurses face abuse, attacks

This makes me so angry! If I were living in one of those nations, I'd just quit my job and live off of my savings throughout the Coronavirus crisis. I'd say, "Oh, you hate doctors and nurses now? Fine! Heal your Corona issues yourselves, then!"

Agreed.

People are happy to applaud from a distance, but become really defensive when they see nurses riding public transit, going to the grocery store, or picking up food from restaurants. News flash: nurses need to eat and get to work just like everybody else. The really sad thing is that many of the attacks worldwide appear to have been targeted at nurses of Asian heritage.

I got shouted at by a nasty old lady when I was doing an essential errand and didn’t have time to change because I was, you know, taking care of patients.

Ah, ignorance in all its glory! I was at the store today and some people were wearing masks. And yet at the same time they went down the aisles like a 747 causing a great turbulence in the air that no doubt spread any viruses around like an uncovered sneeze! They were also picking up everything, looking at it, and returning it to the shelves. And yet they will take the time to scream at someone for something they themselves know little about.
