The EU stands idly by while COVID-19 causes mass slaughter and an economic tsunami which is about to overwhelm Europe.
London doctors have explained to the community how they will “classify” coronavirus patients: young patients without comorbidities will be treated in a field hospital. The elderly, who have fewer chances of survival, will be assigned to public hospitals. There, they are asked, first of all, to sign a pledge not to demand resuscitation if their situation becomes worse. But many patients rebelled against this decision. As a result, the doctors adopted a special algorithm, according to which a patient is deemed “worthy” of an ICU bed and respirator or not.
A claim provided with no evidence, and a recurrent narrative about the West’s inability to manage the coronavirus crisis–as well as sacrificing its elderly for economic reasons.
Additionally, the UK National Health Service (NHS) is governed by the Equality Act 2010 which protects people, among other things, against discrimination, harassment or victimisation as users of private and public services (including the NHS) based on nine protected characteristics, of which "age" comes first (see section 4 of the legislation).
See similar case about Sweden sacrificing its elderly, that the US thinks it stupid to treat the elderly, and that Western market economies leave the old and uninsured without medical assistance during the epidemic.
