Video: David Berger, a remote area general practitioner in northern Australia, endorses Global Inquest into COVID-19 pandemic

In this World Socialist Web Site video interview, Dr David Berger explains his opposition to the official “let it rip” response to COVID-19 and its immediate and long-term social consequences.

Berger discusses his experiences over the past decade working as an emergency doctor in remote Australia and the failure of Australian governments to protect these highly vulnerable communities. He warns that the retrogressive and unscientific government and media responses to the coronavirus are a threat to society and offers his enthusiastic support for the Global Workers’ Inquest into the COVID-19 Pandemic.
