The novel coronavirus continues to make headlines two years after the pandemic debuted in China. Now, it’s been revealed that more than 1,000 healthcare workers from across the state signed an open letter urging proactive covid mitigation measures, including enforcing mask mandates in classrooms and expanding testing sites.
“It’s going to crush the system, and so we are trying to figure out how to re-empower our healthcare workforce and thinking about an open letter. Our whole entire community needs to be able to speak up and be heard,” said Dr. Bradley Dreifuss.
Fox News revealed that the letter signed by over 1,000 people was addressed to Governor Doug Ducey, the Arizona Department of Health Services Interim Director, members of the state legislature, Arizona’s mayors, as well as several others.
It’s also important to note the fact that the letter emphasizes the urgent need for proactive measures and warns that without imminent action, Arizona will face the collapse of its healthcare system.
Dreifuss, who is also an emergency medicine physician at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson said the following:
“we are seeing our hospitals in worse and worse condition and having more and more preventable deaths, not just from patients with COVID.”

The latest on coronavirus
The other day, we were revealing that there’s been a massive scandal involving the fact that the FDA asked for 75 years to produce Pfizer vaccine safety data. Now, it seems that things are changing and you should check out the latest reports on the issue below.
It’s been just reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will have eight months — not the 75 years it requested — to release all documents related to the licensing of Pfizer’s Comirnaty covid vaccine. This is what a federal judge ruled Thursday.
