Those were extremely fierce days, she recalls. Working and living conditions were difficult in the context of the Covid-19 epidemic.

It is impossible to describe the feeling when seeing the patient being weaned off the machine, removed the endotracheal tube and discharged from the hospital… They make me think about the patient's vitality and energy; the value of life and also my value and responsibility as a doctor".
