The medical personnel has been at the forefront of the Covid-19 battle since the pandemic broke out in late 2019. For them, putting on personal protective equipment (PPE) during hour-long working shifts, which is described as “stuffy” and “like a sauna”, has become a daily ritual.

Doctors, nurses, and other hospital personnel have been putting all out to help Covid-19 patients whose lives are dependent on them. They work extra shifts or overnight, skip meals, stay by patients’ side but away from their family. They put other people’s lives before their own.
