According to what was also reported by the newspaper The messenger, in its online edition, the coronavirus pandemic has done literally surging lung surgeries in the United States.
The organization “SOME“, which manages the procurement and donation of organs in the US, reveals a
constant increase in interventions.
In particular, Dr.
David classes, explained that “if there were more lungs available the number of interventions would be even greater than what we evaluate.
Since August 2020 we have treated 238 people, one growth of more than 10 timescompared to the previous year”.
Same goes for David
Mulligan, the president of the transplant center of Yale-New Haven, in Canada:
“Even in our country we are experiencing spikes in lung transplants; when someone contracts COVID-19 so badly that they need a similar intervention and refuses to get the vaccine, there really is a ethical dilemma“.
In both North American countries there is debate over possibility of providing medical care to NO-vax. Some specialized centers have already stated that i patients they will lose theirs place in the ranking if they are not immunized. But there are those who doubt that this could be an injustice, as it would lead to the exclusion of racial, religious or ethnic groups who have lower vaccination rates.
