Deep-Sea Divers Move In To Help Hospitals Fight Coronavirus

The unusual title of this post is the same as an article on the Sunday Times.

This is the introductory paragraph.

More than 500 deep-sea divers who have experience of coping with breathing difficulties have been drafted in to help the NHS treat critically ill coronavirus patients.

When you read the article it seems a sensible more.

  • The divers are medical technicians.
  • They are experts at using masks.
  • They normally provide care offshore.
  • They are used to working in PPE in uncomfortable positions.
  • I suspect, that they are not six stone weaklings.

It is being co-ordinated by a former director-general of the Army Medical Corps.

As a one-time next-door neighbour, who had been a colonel in the British Army once said to me. “In case of war, burn all the rule books!”
