Our martyrs have a banana tree or kaka, and their martyrs have salary increases, exceptional pensions, bonuses, apartments, pilgrimages, jobs for their families, and MPs demanding deductions from employee income. Thus, Doctor Mahmoud Talaat commented on the form proposed by the State to honor the martyrs of the doctors facing Corona.
The president of Ain Shams University, Dr Mahmoud Al-Matini, announced the allocation of 2,500 feddans for the works of the first botanical garden of the Faculty of Agriculture of the university. In honor of the martyrs of the White Army, it includes 200 fruit trees of different types, “mango, pomegranate, orange, cocoa, lemon, berries, etc.”
The names of the martyrs will be launched on these trees to commemorate their memory and an ongoing charity work for their souls, which they sacrificed to save those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, Al-Matini said in press releases.
Doctor Mahmoud Talaat revealed to Al-Jazeera Net feelings of sadness that turned into mocking discussions about the form of honor, which took place between several of his colleagues at the government hospital where they work, and the quick comparison that jumped in the minds of doctors – as soon as the news was read – with what martyrs in the army and police are getting.
Talaat declared that they do not oppose the great advantages that martyrs of duty have received from the army and the police, it is their right, “but our fellow doctors are also martyrs, and their role in protecting the homeland and citizens of the damn pandemic is nothing less than the rest, and they also deserve all the honors and benefits for their families. “
As for Fadi Samir – a doctor working in one of the isolation hospitals – he says he saw his colleagues fall prey to the Corona virus before his eyes as they performed their duty with dedication and steadfastness. , among which young people who had only their wages in the world and left behind women and children who have only their Lord and a pension that does not fill their life.
Samir asked – in his interview with Al Jazeera Net – “Don’t these people deserve exceptional pensions for their children and families?” Shouldn’t a fund be created to honor martyrs, missing persons and injured in security and terrorist operations? “
As doctors – continues Samir – we do not ask for honor, glory or memorial to commemorate the names of our martyrs. We know how to immortalize their names, their heroism and their heroic sacrifices to save the sick and prevent the epidemic from spreading. Our families.
State is running
For her part, private hospital doctor Siham Majed was more optimistic and told Al-Jazeera Net that she was confident the state will inevitably pay attention to the need to ensure families of martyrs, and grant them benefits accordingly. done with other military and police martyrs, terrorist accidents and even victims of major accidents such as trains and the like.
The doctor welcomed President Sisi’s suggestion that a memorial should be built to commemorate the martyrs of the profession so that future generations will know what they have done and be a role model for new doctors in need of dedication to work and knowledge – as we have learned that the medical profession is the noblest of professions, and the profession of the nobles really is.
But a member of the Medical Council – preferring not to be named – commented on Dr Magda’s remarks, asking: “Any attention or attention to the condition that will give our martyrs the doctors, and he has yet to implemented the decision to increase infection. allowance, which has been approved by the House of Representatives and then the President since last July to increase the risk allowance. From 19 to 1225 pounds (the dollar is less than 16 pounds), although the infection allowance for judges who do not deal with patients at all times is 3 thousand pounds?
Huge benefits for the army and the police
A member of the Al-Jazeera Net Doctors’ Medical Union pointed out the huge benefits that the families of military and police victims receive under the law in terms of educational opportunities and scholarships. ‘studies in universities and institutes, in addition to ensuring the continuation of those enrolled in the private schools of the families of the martyrs.
The law also gives their families priority in job competitions advertised by the state as well as the private sector, and the need to offer them employment opportunities suited to their qualifications, as well as to provide them with medical care in armed forces hospitals for those who do not. have them or health insurance, he says.
Their families were given pilgrimage opportunities for widows, free rides on public transport, as well as access to parks and theaters for life, memberships to clubs and youth centers, and even the provision of housing units with state-subsidized projects for those who have done so. Shouldn’t the families of doctors who sacrificed their lives deserve to join the Martyrs’ Fund? According to the requested Union Council member.
The opposite is with our Lord
It should be noted that the government and the House of Representatives have rejected requests from the General Syndicate of Physicians to equate victims of Covid-19, including doctors, nurses and paramedics, with victims of officers and members of the army and the police, integrating them into the provisions of the Fund for the Honor of Victims, Missing Persons and Victims of Terrorist and Security Operations.
Indeed, Sisi said in one of his statements about the victims of the medical sector of the Corona virus, “Our Lord has the opposite … we do not want them to be desperate”. This prompted the Doctors Union to invite its members to donate to benefit the injured and the deceased’s families among the doctors, which sparked widespread disagreement among members.
As a member of the Medical Council, Ihab al-Taher, said – in press releases – that this method of collecting donations, which is insulting to the doctor, is not appropriate for the martyrs of the doctors. ‘State because it is a real duty that the State must do.
For his part, Dr Muhammad Al-Badrawi said: Isn’t the resistance to the doctors and the confrontation with Corona considered a war ?! He added that President El-Sisi had ordered to deduct part of the tickets for matches, theaters and amusement parks, driver’s license fees and the like to honor the families of the victims of the army and of the police.
Badrawi has confirmed – in press releases – that the medics who have been martyred over Corona deserve the same honor because they do not get the return while they are alive, it happens while they are in the heart of the clash, while we find in other groups that they do not move from their desks and take thousands under the article instead of the infection, according to His word.
The Doctors’ Union – in a post on its account on the social networking site Facebook – estimated the number of martyrs facing the emerging corona virus on Friday at 546 doctors.
