The big bad news now is that around 2,000 people attended this religious gathering at Nizamuddin, and, many of them have tested positive for COVID-19.
Should these people be given treatment? That is the big question now!
These people have defied the directives of the govt, the medical community, and all other organizations which are trying to control COVID-19. They are big-time ‘law-breakers’ as they have put millions of people at risk. They have done that intentionally and with full knowledge of the situation.
Therefore, should we risk the lives of doctors, nurses and other supporting staff for treating these people?
And, should we use up our limited supply of hospital beds, medicine, ventilators, ICU etc to treat these people?
If we treat them, then we will run short of doctors, medical staff, medicine etc for treating the law abiding citizen who followed the advice/directives and stayed indoors. These law abiding citizens are facing hardship in their daily lives, but are doing whatever is needed to be done to prevent the spread of the virus.
So, should not the first priority of the govt be to protect these law-abiding peaceful citizen who are cooperating with it?
In countries like Italy, the doctors could not treat many law abiding citizens as medicines, hospital beds etc ran out. Many doctors and medical staff also died while treating the covid-19 patients.
The same situation will happen in India too, if we exhaust our supplies on treating the ‘law-breakers’.
Should not these 2000 law-breakers, who have invited COVID-19 onto themselves, be rounded-up, isolated and left to ‘their God’?
