I posted in a quote, since we have been plagued with ads sticking right in the middle of the posts.
This is a temporary measure.

This first post is to make mention of the growing number of health care workers and doctors who are passing away from the Coronavirus...
The pic shows young Chinese doctor Li Wenliang. It is a pretty up close and personal image, I feel he must have given them permission to take this photo. What I see in his young eyes is a recognition of his own mortality, and I see courage. His photo is at the article, link.

 
"...young doctor, Li Wenliang, died February 7, leaving behind a son and pregnant wife. Li, who was 34, had been censored after sounding the alarm about the coronavirus to fellow medical-school alumni."

Several young doctors in China have died of the coronavirus. Medical workers are far more vulnerable to infection than the general population.

More than 3,300 of the 78,800 coronavirus cases in mainland China are among healthcare workers.
At least eight medical workers have died, including one doctor who was 29 and another who was 34.
Older people have the highest risk of dying from the virus. But doctors are at risk because they're overworked, exposed to many infected people, and may lack adequate protection. eng Yinhua, a 29-year-old Chinese doctor, planned to marry his fiancée on February 1. But as the coronavirus outbreak grew, Peng postponed his wedding to help treat patients in Wuhan. He died of the disease on February 21.

Peng was one of at least eight healthcare workers who have died of the virus. Another young doctor, Li Wenliang, died February 7, leaving behind a son and pregnant wife. Li, who was 34, had been censored after sounding the alarm about the coronavirus to fellow medical-school alumni.

Another doctor who worked with Li, died from the virus as well. Mei Zhongming, a 57-year-old ophthalmologist, caught the virus while he was working at the Wuhan Central Hospital, according to the South China Morning Post.

He is the third doctor from that hospital to die from the virus, SCMP reported. Jiang Xueqing, the 55-year-old head of thyroid and breast surgery, died from COVID-19 as well.

As of last month, more than 3,300 healthcare workers in China had been infected with the coronavirus, the LA Times reported. About 90% of those cases are in the Hubei province, where the outbreak began two months ago.

The deaths of doctors in their 20s and 30s naturally sparks concern about the coronavirus' risk to younger people, but according to China's National Health Commission, about 80% of people who have died from COVID-19 were over the age of 60.

Rather, the doctors' deaths highlight an unfortunate reality of any new and evolving outbreak: Healthcare workers on the front lines face a higher risk of contracting the disease.

Why healthcare workers are especially at risk
Healthcare workers are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 for a handful of reasons. First, the coronavirus is highly contagious, and medical staff members are exposed to more viral particles than the general public because they interact with so many sick people.

Research published earlier this month found that of 138 patients studied at one Wuhan hospital, 29% were healthcare workers. One coronavirus patient was initially sent to the wrong ward because they displayed atypical symptoms, so went on to infect at least 10 medical workers.

Second, healthcare workers in China have dealt with a shortage of supplies like masks, suits, and protective gear. That makes staff even more susceptible to the virus while treating patients.

Third, China's medical staff is overworked. At the end January, the Washington Post reported that hospital staff in Wuhan were wearing adult diapers because they didn't have time to use the bathroom in between treating coronavirus patients.

China has less than two physicians for every 10,000 residents, according to the WHO.

When medical staff get sick, these problems compound.

"Just a very rough estimate, 100 nurses and doctors can look after 100 ordinary beds and 16 ICU beds," a Chinese hospital doctor — who was kept anonymous due to fears about losing his job — told the South China Morning Post earlier this month. "If they are sick, not only do they occupy 100 beds, but the staff taking care of 100 beds are gone. That means a hospital loses the capacity of 200 beds. That is why the authorities have to keep sending medics over to Wuhan, not only because there are not enough beds, but because of a lack of health doctors and nurses to take care of the sick beds."

Healthcare workers were disproportionately affected in other outbreaks, too

In past epidemics, healthcare workers were also disproportionately impacted by the illnesses they were treating.
