A Nigerian doctor identified as Doctor Wales has taken to social media to challenge others in the same field to a handwriting competition as he raised awareness on death by prescription.
Doctor Wales shared a note with his beautiful handwriting on his Twitter page and nominated Aproko Doctor and Wakawaka Doctor for the challenge.
Sharing his own handwriting, Doctor Wales wrote:
"My handwriting won't kill you. I nominate @aproko_doctor and @wakawaka_doctor to do this challenge #DoctorsHandwriting."
It is reported that more than 7,000 people die yearly due to doctor's handwriting. This is because the prescriptions by doctors are misunderstood and different medications and dosages are given to patients.
Nigerians took to the comment section of the post to share their reactions.
Twitter user with the handle @akcapello wrote:
"Everything in Nigeria is like a cult affair. In Nigeria doctors handwriting is like Signature. A deliberate action that add no value to the society."
"Wooow. I’m having double takes at this legible and cursive handwriting. There are 3 types of cursive Writing hand: Italic, loop and connected. Yours is a mix of loop and connected. Are you sure you’re a Doctor? Bravo."
"God bless you oo.... Atimes I wonder how this pharmacist sees it and you hardly see them look at it twice ....you will now be feeling like it is you that your eyes is bad or you can't read..thank God am not on this alone, if you ask the Doc, they are like just give the pharmacist."
