Carving out a supply of vaccines from the territory stock is easy. Working with hundreds of decentralised tribal health councils and transporting vaccine (while maintaining its integrity) out to some of the most remote communities on the planet, not so easy or fast.Didn't indigenous people have first access to vaccines because they were vulnerable?

The army oh no!!!Seriously! That is a logistics challenge on steroids. Thankfully they can call on the army reserve up there, which is full of aboriginal volunteers who know the roads and are really good at what they do.
I hope their portable coolers are better than the ones we have here.
He's entitled to call himself a doctor as he's credentialed to a Ph.D. He's not presented himself as an MD/House Doctor or General Practitioner. His qualifications speak for themselves:Not sure about the UK or Africa, but in most places I’ve worked it is sort of frowned upon for PhDs working in healthcare to promote themselves as ‘Doctor’ since it implies they are an MD.

It is frowned upon here too but frankly by only those who are precious.
Here, surgeons are loath to call themselves doctors as they consider that title for general practitioners. They'd rather be addressed as 'Mr'/ 'Ms' etc.
Although I know someone, an OBE , no doubt, who has a honorific doctor title and uses Dr. in their correspondence, twitter, etc. That is criminal.
Yes, correct. We all know that a PhD in English Literature isn't a GP.It is frowned upon here too but frankly by only those who are precious....
Rigid social norms aside, that's very disingenuous and snooty. Many GP's I've had the pleasure of being diagnosed by I wouldn't rate better than horse doctors. And that may be being disingenuous to horse doctors as to qualify as a vet takes a lot longer that being a GP in the UK, or did.As dumb as it all is, a nurse calling themselves doctor certainly stands out as an outlier who wants attention.
There is no misrepresentation, he has represented himself 100% accurately and transparently, if you cared to check and without any pomposity whatsoever.I have a Ph.D. if I called myself Dr. I would be laughed out of any credible room. To use the title is either a sign of pomposity or a misrepresentation. The guy is a nurse with a ph.d., and that’s how he should present himself.
I haven't watched this video and I'm also not really interested, but coincidentally I watched most of his videos on wound treatment and healing about a year ago in relation to a surgery of a friend. Those can't be too bad because I talked about this with one of the doctors in the hospital and he asked whether I'm a colleague. Of course, as a nurse teacher, he should know a bit about wounds.Big in Japan:
There is no misrepresentation, he has represented himself 100% accurately and transparently, if you cared to check and without any pomposity whatsoever.
As stated, my accountant in Italy has a Dr. designation and introduces himself in every conversation, meeting and email with the prefix. It's semantics, nothing to get excited about.
In the UK someone with a Ph.D has the Doctor title and can use it. That might be a problem for you and your culture and/or work culture. But that's a cultural reality that simply is. Both ways.
For me it's quite simple, if someone has a designated and professional status and designation, recognized by official bodies whether that's a PhD in cleaning shit houses, or intergalactic time travel, they can use the title. Of which the good (Dr) John Campbell has used rather sparingly and is in the nursing discipline. I consider nursing a profession, don't you?
Here's a tip for good karma in the future, don't in the English vernacular, dish the nursing profession as low status. Because there will come a time for you, or a member of your family, when the only person keeping them or you from meeting your maker is the diligence and professionalism of a lowly paid nurse on the graveyard shift. All the correct Dr pronouns will all fall silent then, because the hospital doctors will be on their rounds and the 9-5 MD/GP/House Doctor won't be around to help.

"From Dec. 1, wearing a face mask will once again be mandatory in enclosed spaces; a digital certificate proving vaccination or recovery from the coronavirus must be shown to enter restaurants, cinemas and hotels; and even inoculated people must have a negative test to visit hospitals, elderly care homes, sports events and bars and discos."
I need a negative test to go to events, bars, clubs, senior homes, and hospitals even if I am inoculated? What is the point of being vaccinated?
Also if I think I'm positive, how do I get to the hospital to get my test if I need a negative test?
Aboriginal elders, health organisations and frontline workers in the Northern Territory’s Covid outbreak have lashed out at false information about public health measures on social media, with the NT chief minister blaming the misinformation on “tinfoil hat wearing tossers, sitting in their parents’ basements in Florida”.
