Today, there is no country left out from its havoc, and many countries had seen terrible times in a few weeks, till today recorded deaths worldwide are above 100,000. Countries and states are at lockdown, sterilization drives are on, new rules and regulations are being made by authorities to safe their citizen’s lives and to reduce unforeseen circumstances.
During such a Dreadful situation of war between HUMAN and VIRUS, there are brave and selfless soldiers working sleepless nights to save Covid-19 patients. Yes, those highly appreciable soldiers of this war are none other than health care workers; i.e. doctors, nurses and other staff.
Health care workers don’t have the luxury of holing up in their homes to shield themselves from the coronavirus. They have to expose themselves to the risk, and some are separating themselves from their families for weeks to avoid transmitting the virus to them. Some warriors are catching up the disease by their continuous interaction with patients and knowingly dying, being isolating themselves from their loved ones.
Due to their valuable support we are safely sitting in our home at isolation to social distancing, during isolation we are praying and waiting for the havoc to over. But until this awful disease over who is most nearest to the death? Yes, health care workers, and whole healthcare industry is on the edge of greatest challenge of their life. Hospitals undergo a “major effort” to expand intensive care beds, more staffs, doctors, as the number of patients drastically increasing,huge economies healthcare’sare also coping up with unimaginable increasing the demand of resources, equipment and beds, they are also training staff for highly intensive scenarios.
If these soldiers are saved they might come across some psychological and mental health issues in long run due to coping up with such an immense pressure and staying inside the well of death.
Therefore, each one of us has responsibility to support Doctors, Nurses and other Healthcare staffs not by just clapping on the balconies but to support them by staying at home, to respect and support their family members, to be aware about self and family hygiene in addition to maintain social distance and by following rules and regulations by authorities. These are some ways to beat Coronavirus the enemy of Humanity. Until some vaccines or other medicines would be widely available to surpass its spread and cure us.
