Iatrophobia: at new heights

You must wondering about the meaning of iatrophobia. It means abnormal and irrational fear of doctors and hospitals.


Many people do have the fear of doctors. I was afraid of doctors when I was small. In India a doctor wouldn’t be considered a great unless he/she gives an injection shot.

I used to be terrified to visit hospitals out of the fear of injections. My parents wouldn’t be satisfied unless doctor injects the medicine.

The coronavirus pandemic has escalated this phobia. People have begun to discriminate and stigmatize doctors because of coronavirus.

I have heard that some doctors weren’t allowed to enter into their own appartment out of the fear of they might transmit this virus.

Some doctors were abused verbally for engaging in shopping for their basic necessities.

Don’t you think doctors are humans and they also have basic human rights. How in the world the one who is engaged in saving lives of coronavirus victims supposed to survive if he is ostracized.

Think about it. I don’t support them because I a doctor, but this isn’t done. We need to appreciate doctors as they risk their lives to care for the victims of this pandemic.

Please support, care, and encourage doctors of this world. If you can’t appreciate, then at least don’t hate them or trouble them. This is my humble request to all those who will read this post.

Blessings in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh.

    Yes! We as Doctors have rights too. We love our job which is caring for our patients and making sure they get better and return to their families and communities.
    Doctors are humans too, they have families and loved ones too. Love and don’t hate on them!
