Voices From the Front Line
What those who are caring for us say
It is necessary to supply the medical specialists, too, for them to be willing to keep their office hours! So far, they have not been doing so…
All the protection, i.e. FFP2, FFP3 respirators, disinfectants, I had to buy myself without any support... ...at inflated prices, circa ten times, so that I could at least provide the acute care.
When you have nothing, anything is a great help.
It is practically impossible to buy the [protective] equipment - we will be grateful for help.
I ordered PE [protective equipment] several times, also via the [Prague] City Hall, and nothing did arrive…
I have submitted a request to the [Prague] Public Health Authority, yet without a reaction so far; [my female] colleagues did not get what they had asked for.
Supplying from the [Prague] City Hall, in the form of rations, [has been] inadequate both in frequency and the amount of assigned equipment, and in its types, too.
From the beginning we use the [disposable] PE [protective equipment] repeatedly, otherwise we would have had to work without PE.
We had managed to procure disinfectants and gloves just before these goods disappeared from the market, but consumption is significantly higher than normally, so if there is not a possibility again to buy these items for the usual prices by the end of April , we will have a problem.
We are beginning to lack hand disinfectants and gloves. Furthermore, we have no protective clothing (gown) and headwear at all.
