Those who’d made their full recoveries from contracting MERS, are now, treated like, the virus itself, because let’s face it, we’re all, afraid, seeing how quickly MERS-CoV is, spreading out, all over the world right now, but this, is the WRONG sort of behavior that will, only, tear the society apart more! Off of the Newspapers, translated…
“My child had made a full recovery from MERS-CoV contractions, but there are the parents in his school, who’d feared that their own children may get infected, didn’t want my son to return back to school, it made us feel cast out”, a mother called out helplessly, this showed, the trials of those who’d made full recoveries from MERS-CoV contraction come out into the open, the Kaohsiung City started up the “Recovered Care Cases for Those Who Had Formerly Contracted MERS-CoV”, called out to the society to stop labeling, that more tolerance, empathy should be shown to those who’d made the full recoveries.
There are about 14 million of the Taiwanese population who are getting out of quarantine, after they are released from the hospitals, they may be faced with discrimination of the society, and, their challenges to return their lives back to normal, is now, only, begun. The C.E.O. of the Clinical Psychologist Guild of Kaohsiung, Chen told, a lot of the public believed that the virus is too tough, that there were the cases of the recovered contracting the virus again, worried that being in contact, will make them infected as well, there was the parent of a young child who contracted MERS-CoV, and the young child was forced to transfer out of the preschool, the family is still currently being, counseled, “when we’re helpless, if the therapists can be like a cane, at least, they can help those who’d contracted the virus who’d recovered, part of the way.
The manager of the health sanitation center set by the Department of Health Welfare & Sanitations, Su told, that there are, an assortment of varied situations with the contracted, there was a mentally ill patient who was quarantined because the family member had contracted the virus, and afterwards, the individual wasn’t allowed back to the facility s/he was living in from before; most of the people who’d contracted MERS-CoV worried that they won’t be accepted back into the society, and not wanted those around them to know they’d contracted the virus, and they felt tried, but are all, unwilling, to seek out counsel.
Su also told, that not only was it hard, for those who made full recoveries from contracting the virus to return back to society, the at-home quarantine individuals are also, targets of a “witch hunt”, and this would cast that shadow on their live; after the care hotlines got started in Kaohsiung, the counselors are able to call those who’d returned back home, and as the cases are willing, to accept this help, then, they’d taken that very important, first step, to begin their, recovery, processes.
And so, this is still, combining the diseases, with the individuals who’d, contracted it, like how us Asians are, discriminated against in the U.S. at the very start of MERS-CoV epidemic? And that’s, just wrong, I mean, these people had fully recovered, meaning that their swabs, their blood, saliva tests came back clean, with ZERO sign of the virus present in their systems, and now, the society still see them as, the plague? Yeah, that’s something all right!
It is, WRONG, to discriminate someone, just because they have some sort of a disorder, but that’s, what people are, prone to do, and there’s, nothing being, done about it.
