I appreciate the work health care personnel do for us all. But at the same time, I think healthcare workers know from day one that working in a hospital means the sickest patients some with deadly diseases will be their patients. This is part of the risk of the job. Healthcare workers accept this risk when they enter the field.

I am reminded of the guy in chemistry graduate school who believed chemicals were so dangerous he was afraid to touch them. A bit of an oxymoron.

The implication of health care workers who fear working with the sick is similar.

Thank them for their sacrifices. It's a risk they accepted.
