Worked the late A&E SHO shift on NYE and came out to this. Hundreds of maskless, drunk people in huge groups shouting “Covid is a hoax”, literally outside the building where hundreds are sick and dying. Why do people still not realise the seriousness of this pandemic? pic.twitter.com/KTkCtNf62A

People are tired of this stupid hoax.
A junior A&E doctor was left ‘heartbroken’ after being met with a huge crowd of maskless revellers after his New Year’s Eve shift in London.
Dr Matthew Lee was ‘disgusted’ after a crowd – some chanting ‘Covid is a hoax’ – gathered outside St Thomas’ Hospital – where tireless doctors battled to save Boris Johnson’s life after he contracted Covid last year.
Dr Lee, from Hong Kong, filmed the group after he finished his senior house officer (SHO) shift in the A&E department.
He claimed some of the people were Covid-19 conspiracy theorists as he questioned why many Britons still don’t ‘realise the seriousness of this pandemic’.
Dr Lee shared the clip to Twitter with the caption: ‘Worked the late A&E SHO shift on New Year’s Eve and came out to this.
‘Hundreds of maskless, drunk people in huge groups shouting “Covid is a hoax”, literally outside the building where hundreds are sick and dying.
‘Why do people still not realise the seriousness of this pandemic?‘
He later added: ‘I’m disgusted but mostly heartbroken. I wish people could see the amount of Covid-19 [cases] and deaths in hospitals, and the sacrifices that healthcare workers make.
‘This week alone has been so tough. Their ignorance is hurting others. I really wish people would keep themselves safe.’
His footage sparked outrage online, with countless Britons rushing to condemn Covid conspiracy theorists.
Piers Morgan shared Dr Lee’s clip, writing: ‘This is so disgusting. These morons shame Britain.’
He later added: ‘Still seething about this. If it’s a hoax, let’s take all these imbeciles inside the Covid ward without PPE.
‘See how brave they feel when confronted with the reality of people choking to death.’
Paediatric doctor Sarah Hallett wrote: ‘And yet ironically, despite how angry and despairing this makes us as NHS staff, if any single one of them needed our help (perhaps intubation and ventilation for example), we would do it in a heartbeat.’
Another viewer added: ‘I’d love to drag them around the hospital, going from ward to ward showing them the devastation Covid is causing.
‘Maybe end the tour with a quick visit to the Morgue. Absolute fools.’
The quick visit to the morgue won’t be necessary, because we know as a matter of fact that coronavirus doesn’t increase the total deaths in a year.
Hospitals were never overwhelmed at any point in 2020, and they’re not overwhelmed now.
Most health care workers are scum who go along with this hoax in order to call themselves heroes, even though they didn’t do anything other than dance for social media during the alleged peak of the alleged pandemic.

Shout-out to all the nurses out there, y’all do the Lord’s work! But if you have to twerk on TikTok, then you must not be overwhelmed with the virus like they say. And if y’all are then I can’t tell! pic.twitter.com/nURheHQ2Bz

Now they’re acting as if hospitals were working at full capacity, while in fact most hospitals appear to be pretty much empty.
