Ministry of Health condemns deliberate smear campaigns against health personnel
of Health has condemned the deliberate smear campaigns against health personnel just because they raise awareness and urge everyone to receive vaccines against the COVID-19 virus, and said the ministry supports and appreciates the efforts of medical personnel who have devoted their efforts to protect the community preventively and curatively.
In a statement, the ministry urged everyone not to pay heed or rather ignore unconfirmed and unknown information, pointing to the importance of cooperation and standing as one to protect the society from the deadly virus.
The ministry praised all official and voluntary efforts which contribute to the community awareness and preservation and the efforts devoted to urging others to get vaccinated to help everyone co-exist with this epidemic safely, especially efforts that urge everyone to take the Covid-19 vaccine.
The Kuwaiti Medical Association (KMA) has mobilized forces against the attack on doctors by some antivaccination activists who are active on the social media who present abnormal and strange ideas and trends, which are of course a blow to health security in light of the great momentum the ministry has gathered both the global and local level.
The KMA stressed that global medical studies and local statistics clearly demonstrated the benefits of vaccination, and the harms of refraining from it, especially that the number of people who received the Covid-19 vaccination globally amounted is 3 billion and is in line with the benefits of this vaccination.
The KMA President Dr Ahmed Thuwaini Al-Enezi, affirmed that the association is the legitimate representative of doctors in Kuwait and their representative in civil society institutions, and an advocate for community health, as it is the first supporter of the vaccination campaign as a major step in combating the Corona pandemic.
For his part, the KMA Vice-President
Dr. Ali Al-Moussawi, indicated the country’s senior leaders support the great efforts of medical cadres, and appreciate the great sacrifices made by doctors to save people’s lives in the face of this global pandemic.
The KMA Secretary-General Dr. Salem Al-Kandari said the method of attack and bullying that characterizes some of those who oppose vaccination is the biggest evidence of their abnormality and fragility and the level of their behavior and thinking.
