Coronavirus has not stopped spreading and killing across the world, but at this time, it is important to scream at the top of our voice that Dr Stella Adedevoh should not be killed again.
At this critical time where Coronavirus has chosen to attach the world, places, where health practitioners can be found, becomes a haven for victims.
The Hippocratic oath taking by medical practitioners might be strong but the large hearts of these medical practitioners is more reliable to accommodate as much as possible. Life and death is believed to be in the hands of God, but medical practitioner care while God heals.
The Hippocratic oath-taking by medical practitioners might be strong, but the large hearts of these medical practitioners are more reliable to accommodate as much as possible. Life and death are believed to be in the hands of God, but medical practitioner care while God heals.
“ I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing.
Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly, I will not give a woman a pessary to cause abortion. But I will keep pure and holy both my life and my art.
I will not use the knife, not even, verily, on sufferers from stone, but I will give place to such as are craftsmen therein.
Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick, and I will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, especially from abusing the bodies of man or woman, bond or free.
And whatsoever I shall see or hear in the course of my profession, as well as outside my profession in my intercourse with men; if it is what should not be published abroad, I will never divulge, holding such things to be holy secrets.
Now if I carry out this oath, and break it not, may I gain for ever reputation among all men for my life and for my art; but if I break it and forswear myself, may the opposite befall me.”
Dr. Stella Adedvoh
Dr. Stella Adadevoh, a Lead Consultant and Endocrinologist, saved millions of Nigerians and Africa at large from a significant Ebola outbreak with her doggedness but paid with her life.
For the good of the greater public, she refused to release a victim of Ebola in her care in 2014. She got infected with ebola, died alongside three of her colleagues.
Though until today, her name has not been erased from upon the rock it was carved, her death remains a catastrophic loss to Nigeria and Africa.
Her colleagues who laid down their lives for a lot of people they do not know can not be forgotten in a hurry.
Now that Coronavirus has visited the earth with the sting of death, we can not afford to kill Dr Stella Adadevoh again. Reports coming from around the world shows how medical practitioners who are catering to the victims of Coronavirus as losing their lives.
When the happens, we can not boldly say we are not killing Dr Stella Adadevoh again.
News coming from Spain shows that Coronavirus has infected about 9,444 health workers treating patients. Also, at least 23 Italian doctors have died as a result of this pandemic.
A male nurse has also died in The United States of America. Isn’t this sad, alarming and another way of killing Dr Stella Adadevohs in Spain? The death of any health worker in a bid to save the lives of their patient should not be allowed.
If these 9,444 Stella Adadevohs die, what are our gain and testimony?
If we keep losing those who are meant to care for us, then wholes will? Every medical practitioner treating Coronavirus patients around the world at this time is a Stella Adadevoh, and such should not die.
If Dr Stella, who dedicated 21 years of her life to taking care of patients, died on the mission and was mourned, we are not ready to bury another.
Let the precautionary items be provided in abundance for our health workers.
Let them be protected so that we all can be protected. If they live, then we can have another taste of life.
Then those who are victims of Coronavirus can live to tell the story. Then they can try to explain to us what it feels like to be attacked by this enemy of humanity called Coronavirus.
We all should support the call for our Stella Adadevohs to live, they must survive; we all must be conquerors at the end of this turbulence.
