Delivering the Best in Extreme Working Conditions
Especially in the underdeveloped countries, there have been numerous reports about the scarcity of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Kits, which protects medical workers from getting infected from the virus. However, the doctors, nurses, and paramedics have been taking care of infected patients without giving a second thought. It has also been reported in several countries that due to an increasing number of cases and limited resources, these healthcare workers have been working for up to 18 hours a day.
Besides police, utility providers and other emergency workers are putting long hours to ensure that the situation remains under total control. In many countries around the world, these workers are also seen helping citizens in delivering their necessities and providing food to needy people. In addition, they have been seen spreading awareness and positivity in people during this tough time.
Inspiring Stories of Corona Warriors
Dr.Liu was one of the doctors sent to Wuhan in late January to help in the treatment of over ten thousand COVID-19 infected patients. As per the details shared by him, when he reached Wuhan it looked like a deserted city. He was deployed to the isolation ward in the Wuhan Central Hospital. He was in charge of 8 to 10 patients, working for almost 8 to 10 hours every day. Moreover, the mode of transmission of the disease was unclear so he was very nervous. It used to take him 90 minutes to put on and put off all protective clothing, and it is not possible to take food or water after wearing the protective clothing. Besides, he had to use adult diapers as it wasn’t possible to visit the bathroom during that time. Dr.Liu was able to see his wife and his seven-year-old son from the bus window when he arrived in his home town. Since then, he was in touch with his family via video call only as he had to go under quarantine after returning to his hometown.
Dr. Nayak is working among coronavirus patients in a hospital in Bhopal, India. As a doctor he understands the severity of the coronavirus disease and the importance of his availability to treat the patients. These days, Dr. Nayak doesn’t go home after finishing his work at the hospital. Instead, he has made his car as a home. He decided to take this step to protect his wife and child from the possibility of getting an infection. After finishing work Dr.Nayak stays in his car parked near the hospital. He has stocked the daily use items and he stays in touch with his family via phone or video calls.
