Recall that the NHL season on 12 March was suspended due to the threat of the spread of coronavirus
Representative of the Canadian Association of emergency physicians Alan Drummond said that during a pandemic coronavirus arena of the NHL should restructure and build a temporary hospital or morgue.
Answering the question, when can resume the regular season, Drummond said that “all do not care”.
“Now there is only one goal all over the world. I love sports, like everyone else, but now is not the time. In the end, the sports, the entertainment industry, where highly paid athletes playing for our pleasure. Perhaps we are now fighting for our lives”, – quotes the words of Drummond journalist Rick Westhead on Twitter.
“Now we need to concentrate only on one thing – the suppression of COVID-19 – continued Drummond. – It is better to turn a hockey arena into a temporary hospital or morgue.”
Dr. Drummond: Even a game with no fans would divert socket resources from frontline medical workers.
(For starters, paramedics & team doctors required to attend pro league games. Further, if a player is injured, how many medical supply resources used on him instead of on Covid patients?)
