The Daily Mail (and possibly others) have recently released a barrage of articles with shocking headlines such as "Are doctors killing Covid patients by putting them on ventilators".
They back this hideous claim up a stat that in some countries 80% of people put onto ventilators die. Of course they bloody do! If someone gets to the point of being ill enough to need ventilation then the chances of survival are pretty bloody slim! Its like saying 80% of people who have chemotherapy die.....
My sister (an ICU nurse) has already had battles with patients (or their families) who don't want ventilation because they have read the articles. If people start point blank refusing and die as a result, someone at the Daily Mail should really be pulled up on manslaughter charges!

Rant over... have a nice day all!

The DM is a perfect example of our gutter press who are determined to misrepresent and misreport.

No doubt the DM will run articles with headlines like "Most Covid-19 patients die as no ventilators"
Omitting that the patient refused in the first place as they had read the first article.

Stay safe.
