Calgary nurse’s post defending front-line workers to ‘internet trolls’ goes viral


Jewell returned home after a shift and when she woke up to internet trolls downplaying the pandemic and disputing it, she felt compelled to write a post to her fellow front-line workers. “Despite all the crap you are spreading online, when you come into emerg, with your eyes bulging out of your head because you can’t breathe… we’ll take care of you. Even at great risk to our own health, we will do everything we can to help you oxygenate better as COVID starts to ravage your lungs. And when you deteriorate, we will sedate you, intubate (put a breathing tube in) and transfer you to one of the excellent ICUs we have across this province.”
