The young doctor and writer from Toledo David Dylan has published 'In the silence of that pandemic', a book that provides a multidisciplinary vision of those first waves of the pandemic in which health professionals counted down the days to return to their families. Published by the Toledo publishing house 'Ledoira', all proceeds will go to the Food Bank of Toledo.

From the hand of doctors and different professionals, the work goes through the corridors of one of the hospital centers hardest hit by the pandemic. All this narrated in the first person so that the reader can be a participant in the experiences, the media, the information, the dilemmas that arose and the treatments available in those first waves.

On this trip, the author also delves into some of the solidarity initiatives that emerged to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. With a respectful tone, "the work thus becomes a tribute to those affected and a vindication of the Health System and its professionals."

“While half the world echoed the numbers of those infected, nobody talked about the effects that the disease has caused on mental health. When only the curve was mentioned, nobody noticed the work adaptation to which Nursing was forced or the weight of the responsibility that fell on the MIR students. Every time a restriction measure was protested, it was forgotten that someone would be turned down for an ICU bed. Every afternoon that people went out to the balconies to applaud, some neighbors locked themselves in stealth to make sanitary material, "explains its author. It was from that silence that this book was born.

Thus, the work addresses the start of the pandemic in primary care and the changes that occurred in the population in those weeks: from the absolute ignorance of the virus to the fear of institutional chaos that caused food shortages in some supermarkets.

As David Dylan explains to ABC, the book also focuses on offering “a vision of the care provided in the emergency room and hospitalization, with the profound transformation that occurred driven by the demand for care, uncertainty and the scarcity of means. We addressed the ethical dilemmas that arose and the organization in work groups. All in the first person so that the reader can feel in the front line of battle those days.

Other points of view are also provided in which professionals from various fields participate: the adaptation of nursing, the importance of mental health, the experience in the ICU or the fear of those medical students without work experience "who were forced into a turbulent premiere," he says.

The official presentation will take place after the holidays, next September.
