Healthcare professionals have bridged the gap between science and society since ancient times; applying their vast knowledge to human health has been a crucial aspect of humankind and has allowed societies to flourish into what we are today.
Amid this global pandemic due to COVID-19, doctors and healthcare professionals around the world have adopted the role that the military used to take against a common enemy: they are the frontline soldiers against an invisible and sometimes fatal enemy.
Their priority is to put the lives of patients first, even if it means working through exhaustion while most of us are confined at home waiting for out healthcare army to bring patients back to their normal lives.
Doctors, nurses, paramedics and other healthcare professionals around the world have faced an unusual workload in overstretched facilities and with no end in sight. They have managed to deliver an amazing work to save the lives of millions of people while having to deal with the stress and fear of being vulnerable to catch the virus themselves.
How can we help our local doctors get through this emergency faster?
By staying at home, we reduce the odds of more people getting infected, eventually making the number of positive cases much lower and easier to handle. Remember, doctors might be on the frontline, but we are all in this together!
