Kurginyan: Debate with doctors instead of making tours to COVID hospitals

27.11.2021, Moscow.

A discussion among healthcare professionals should be organized instead of making tours to COVID hospitals, said political scientist, philosopher and the leader of the Essence of Time movement said on November 24 in his special issue of “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast published on YouTube addressing 11 chief physicians who signed an open letter to “opponents of vaccination.”

In their open letter, the 11 chief physicians addressed a number of politicians and public activists opposing the forced vaccination of the Russian population for COVID-19. The physicians invited them to COVID hospitals counting that this would change their position on vaccination for COVID-19.

In the special issue of “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast discussing the chief physicians’ open letter Kurginyan said that one should visit any problem areas, including COVID hospitals in order to work, rather than seek emotional experiences; therefore, “impressionable tourists should keep out of any problem areas.”

“Tourism to areas of disaster is immoral, senseless, and disgusting. As for betting on such impressionability being possible, this has nothing to do with me. I worked in many crisis areas, in many zones of disaster. And it is not a matter of getting impressions, but it is a matter of acting,” Kurginyan said.

The political scientist expressed sympathy to those who are in the COVID hospitals. He noted that this makes him feel sorry deep in his heart, but when you must work you should balance costs and benefits, choose a scenario, and act, but not seek thrills.

Kurginyan suggested that the chief physicians who invited him and other opponents of forced vaccination to visit COVID hospitals should instead organize a professional discussion with other healthcare professionals who have an alternative position.

“Why not take a look at it in a new light? Why can the healthcare professionals who are inviting us to the COVID hospitals with some strange purpose… not invite their colleagues to talk?” Kurginyan said.

He stressed that such a conversation must use “not the language of  impressionability, but the language of costs and benefits.”

On November 24, 11 heads of hospitals and departments working with coronavirus patients published an open letter addressing a number of public activists “and other opponents of vaccination.” The authors said that they are aware of the addressees’ position on the vaccination of the Russian citizens for COVID-19, but they did not describe it.

They noted that they all “are somewhat busy now,” and they assumed that the addressees’ “can figure out with what.” Under the guise of being busy, they invited the addressees’ to visit COVID departments of their hospitals, and they expressed hope that this would change the addressees’ position, which would result, in the authors’ opinion, in “fewer deaths.”
