最近准备看牙的童鞋们,有没有被取消预约?

那是因为,很多牙医都被牙医协会要求自我隔离了...

这事儿要从3月初在温哥华会议中心(Vancouver Convention Cetnre)的牙医大会说起。

这是温哥华一年一度的牙科盛事,被称为“全北美最大的牙科会议”,今年有超过15000名演讲者、牙医、及牙科学生参加。

大会结束后,一位有德国旅行史的参加者对COVID-19测试呈阳性。

后来,又有至少4名参与者确诊。

再后来,牙医协会紧急通知所有参加过大会的牙医,

立刻停业!

自我隔离至3月22日后才能重新开门!

好了,这是故事背景。以下是爆料。

昨天,一位牙科诊所负责人谷小姐(Shannon Gu)对VanPeople编辑爆料,她在大会召开前就曾写信给主办方太平洋牙医会议部门(Pacific Dental Conference Department)、卑诗牙医协会(BC Dental Association)和卑诗疾病管制中心,提醒大会应该要做好预防疫情的工作,但这些机构都忽略了她。

谷小姐陈述,她在2月29日发邮件给以上三个单位,关注这1.5万人的大会可能引起的疫情问题,建议它们即使不能取消大会,也应该透过邮件让所有参加者对疫情有警示,起码要做到以下三点:

呼吁参加者要戴口罩

让大会分批进行,疏通人流

吃饭聊天时候大家要保持一些距离

邮件原文如下

Dear Pacific Dental Conference Department:

Dear BC College of Dental Surgeon:

Dear BC Centre of Disease Control:

Title: Creating awareness of COVID-19 at PDC event.

I am a manager of the dental office, and PDC will open this week Friday. I just want to help if I can provide few suggestion to you.

The Pacific Dental Conference is one of the largest dental conferences in North America, yearly there will have thousands of dental professionals and dental suppliers attend the event. I attend few at PDC before, many people will go and will be very crowed. People sit next to each other. Many chatting (face to face talking) will happen in the event as well. You will see many people, and especially for the first day of the event.

Even Canada only identified less than 20 cases but the novel coronavirus has killed more than 2,900 people worldwide,and now keep spreading all over the world.

Global markets are in a panic. Japan has shut down schools. Australia has warned of a pandemic. Italy has locked down towns. South Korea has seen a frightening surge in the number of people sickened by the fast-spreading coronavirus. Iran has the most people got killed by the virus. Iran is a in a mass now. The World Health Organization has said the global risk posed by the virus that causes COVID-19, now confirmed in 53 countries, is “very high.”

Recent NDEB, many dentists graduated from Iran. We donot know their recent travel history. Also, many suppliers from USA, and USA has more cases as well. Also, China, Japan, Korean, Italy also are in bad condition.

We should have the awareness for now.

We want to recommend PDC should send email to whoever registered to provide few basic suggestions for them

1. Whoever attend have a mask on if possible( PDC cannot afford the mask because masks are short everywhere) so whoever attend, a mask is recommended

2. If too late to send email, put a notice at the entrance and food court

3. Keep distance when talking

4. Should bring own sanitizer or PDC can put few inside

5. if can control only 1000 people per day.( not over 2000 per day)

the people will attend from our office, we already provided these tips to them. Hopefully, not only PDC has a successful event but also safely complete the event.

All I want to do is to create awareness and help as much as I can.

Sincerely

Shannon

卑诗疾控中心的Bill Wong回复给谷小姐的电子邮件中说,该中心没有参与这个大会,因此把她的邮件转发到太平洋牙医会议部门和卑诗牙医协会来回复。但谷小姐说,她事后没有收到任何回应。

谷小姐忧心地表示:“此大会是一年一度的牙医界大型会议,规模堪称北美最大,你可以想像这位产品说明员和多少人近距离接触来推销其产品,可能被感染的人数非常多。而这些参与者又回到他的工作、家庭和社区中,包括继续为病人看诊服务,后果难以令人想像,可能会让成千上万人置于健康风险中。”

谷小姐的牙医诊所出于对疫情的顾虑,决定这次不参加本次大会。后来有别的牙医告诉她,当天会场上几乎没有人戴口罩。谷小姐对于政府部门和主办方缺乏警觉的态度感到遗憾又气愤。

今天谷小姐再次遗憾地对VanPeople表示,她这次的行为就犹如吹哨人李文亮,可是她并没有得到任何重视。

这本来是一个完全可以避免的大型传染聚会。

从这次的牙医大会中也看得出,病毒在大型聚会中传播的速度有多快。

加拿大人,醒醒吧!
