A junior A&E doctor was left ‘heartbroken’ when a maskless crowd allegedly shouted ‘Covid is a hoax’ outside his hospital on New Year’s Eve. Dr Matthew Lee said he felt ‘disgusted’ after coming across the gathering as he left St Thomas’ Hospital in London on December 31.
Sharing a video of the crowd, he tweeted: ‘Worked the late A&E SHO shift on NYE and came out to this.
‘Hundreds of maskless, drunk people in huge groups shouting “Covid is a hoax”, literally outside the building where hundreds are sick and dying.
‘Why do people still not realise the seriousness of this pandemic?’ He added: ‘I’m disgusted but mostly heartbroken. I wish people could see the amount of #COVID19 and death in hospitals, and the sacrifices that healthcare workers make.
‘This week alone has been so tough. Their ignorance is hurting others. I really wish people would keep themselves safe.’
