Storm in the garden Posted June 27, 2020 Share Posted June 27, 2020 Around a month ago at the height of the scam-demic I had a hospital appointment. There was hand sanitising and mask wearing involved (not by me!) but it went ahead. About a week later I got a phone call from the specialist saying that they were sending out a prescription and that should solve the issue, but they would like to see me again in around four months to ensure everything is okay. They actually used the term "visual examination" in the telephone conversation. A week later I got a letter confirming a hospital appointment for late September. Yesterday I got a letter from them saying: "Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation clinic appointments are now being held by phone" This makes absolutely no sense. During a time when restrictions are being lifted they are actually going in the opposite direction. They could see me at the height of the scam-demic but in the "improving climate" can't see me? So in a period where pubs are being reopened they are cancelling future hospital appointments? There are only two logical conclusions I can draw from this. The 2nd pandemic is planned for September. Most of us would have expected it to be later during the traditional flu season, but maybe they are going to use the reopening of schools as the "cause"? Maybe they are moving "pandemic - the sequel" forward because people are returning to normality at a faster pace than they expected. The other less likely possibility is that they are simply panicking and are using every tool available to keep up the fear factor. It also ties in with the whole 'virtual doctor' plan they have to euthanise any portion of the masses who are unwell and a drain on the system. Apart from these two possibilities I can see no other reason why in a supposedly improving situation hospitals would be moving in the opposite direction. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
