On 19 February 2020, some members of the pro-Beijing camp organized a press conference for the “victims of the medical strike” where family members of some patients criticized the medical staff for going on strike and claimed that they would sue the participating medical workers.
Nevertheless, the Hong Kong Patients’ Rights Association, a group advocating the rights of patients, held a different opinion.
The Association disagreed with these actions brought about by the pro-Beijing camp, they found it unreasonable to conclude without due process by putting the blame on medical workers.
In addition, the Association pointed out that if a patient’s medical accident was due to the shortage of medical staff, the problem lies with the Hospital Authority.
The defendant should be “Hong Kong Hospital Authority”, not the medical staff who went on strike.
