People generally have a dread of viruses and other infectious agents. That’s why efforts urging the public to be supportive of nurses working on the front lines to nurse the sick back to health have not really succeeded. Despite taking all the necessary precautions to protect themselves, hospital workers are still perceived by many as potential carriers of viral diseases.

Humans, be they first-world or third-world citizens, have an instinct for self-preservation. And that, in a nutshell, is why an awful lot of people always keep their guard up.

Bro, you jolly well know this is fake news right? Why distract us from the main íssue?

The nurse should shoot back and tell others on the bus or MRT that if they are afraid of her, then they should get out.

The other day I was at a bus stop and saw a woman running to catch the bus. The bus captain was about to close the door and leave when I flagged it so that the woman would be able to catch it. She did and she was a nurse and I was happy to do it for her.

You’re right – I’m one of those sceptics who doubt the credibility of what I feel is a sensationalized news story. To my mind, S’poreans have certain standards of civility, and they wouldn’t go as far as being intrusive, like peeking in a stranger’s bag in a bus and, upon discovering her nurse attire, started to chase her away. The plot that other commuters acted in unison to drive the nurse away strains credulity in our civilized country.

While the news item may be a fake one, ugly outbreaks of “nurse-phobia” have been reported in times of epidemics, and I do not question the veracity of many of those bits of news. Clearly, getting infected with pathogen is an occupational hazard for healthcare workers.

Look, no one is distracting attention from the coronavirus storyline when they talk of the phobia about nurses, which is what the main topic of conversation in this thread is all about.
