Why physicians must cover up

IF I see, or hear, one more person say, in the context of the argument about the niqab, that doctors and nurses who perform operations are covered up apart from their eyes, I will scream.

Of course they are. It is to prevent cross-contamination – it is not a statement of religious, or cultural, belief.

And the doctor or nurse concerned is not communicating with the patient.
