Virus blunders see govt bobbing and weavingA big round of applause from people around the country can lift the spirits of doctors and nurses fighting against the coronavirus outbreak. We saw photos of nurses washing and sanitising face masks for reuse as they are given only a few to use each week. These are stories of desperation and heroic attempts to keep saving lives even in the face of extreme shortages and hardship. Every day, we are repeatedly assured by officials at the microphone that there has been no shortage of face masks or other protective equipment. Is this misunderstanding the reason why hospitals and health personnel do not have enough face masks?
