Young SA doctor on the front line against coronavirus in China

Singh said his conscience, and his oath as a medical doctor, could not allow him to leave Wenzhou when it needed him most.

Pretoria – For South African doctor Brett Lyndall Singh, China has become a treasured second home, and the bond developed with the Asian country will not allow him to pack his bags at a time when the nation is heavily besieged by the deadly novel coronavirus, which has so far killed more than 1600 people. Singh said his conscience, and his oath as a medical doctor, could not allow him to leave the city of Wenzhou when it needed him most. “We work from 7am to 6pm. We also have night shift duties. We usually see around 50 paediatric patients a day, but during these times, we have implemented a triage system to treat patients. "I am designated to my district, and see most cases that are not necessary to go to the hospital, so that we do not send patients near the isolation zones. Most cities have implemented strict quarantines and people are encouraged to stay at home and not travel,” said 26-year-old Singh – known as Xin Chengle in Chinese - in responses emailed to African News Agency (ANA). “I also work by doing online medical consultation in the night via WeChat, as well as to help volunteer on the front line. Severe cases are sent to isolation wards and the infectious diseases doctors are the ones heading the management of these patients. I work either at the hospital, the clinic, on the front lines to measure temperatures and basic physical checkup, as well as do research to help find a cure [for COVID-19].” Read more: IOL News
