When I first started to do therapy during my younger days, it took me quite a while to get used to how to keep my mouth shut on handling the issue of confidentiality of my clients.  On another dimension is how and what not to reveal about you and your colleagues to the media. Paul, I understand what you’re saying.

Beckman et al’s article on ‘How to Stand Behind Frontline Health Care Workers Fighting Coronavirus’ is alarming as they write, “… 50% of people exposed to confirmed COVID-19 cases were health care personnel.” Is this rate a guestimation? I certainly empathize with people who are working on the frontline. Some of the health care personnel in my country who were on the frontline have recently died of coronavirus infection too. My question is, are the government and health facilities doing enough on their part to ensure the safety of these personnel?
