Singapore — A local nurse took to social media with a heartbreaking tweet about frontline healthcare workers like himself being blamed for Covid-19 now after being cheered as heroes when the pandemic began last year.

In a tweet which has since been deleted, the nurse @slhnrzmi wrote: “It’s sad, really sad to know that a year ago nurses like me were called healthcare heroes. But now? We are the ones being blame (sic) for the outbreak”.

He pointed out the hypocrisy of some, who just a year ago, lauded and applauded our nurses and healthcare workers for being “healthcare heroes”. However, after a 46-year-old nurse working at TTSH tested positive for Covid-19 on Apr 28 despite being vaccinated, many turned against them, blaming nurses and frontline healthcare staff for the current outbreak.

The man, an A&E nurse according to his Twitter profile, added: “We sacrificed our lives to protect yours. And when its the time we need support from you, you turn against us? It’s sad. Very sad.”
