The Corona Virus or the Covid-19 originated in Wuhan, China, in the year 2019. This virus spread fear worldwide and became the prime reason for uncountable deaths. The virus continues to create havoc as the second wave strikes back even harder than the first. The doctors and scientists are yet to find a cure for this disease.
Who are Frontline workers?
The frontline workers can be termed as the backbone of the health care centres. They play a critical role in today’s world as they are the shield that stands between us and the virus. These frontline workers are the doctors, nurses, and anyone associated with the healthcare department. Earlier, we rarely paid close attention to their jobs, but the pandemic taught us that not all heroes wear a cape. They are the ones who are exposed to the virus at all times and have a higher risk of catching it.
A doctor’s tryst with COVID-19
This virus has been thrusting challenge after challenge, but the doctors are bravely waving off all threats. Corona has broken down the healthcare department burdening it with a number of victims and the lack of facilities, yet they refused to give up. This has not only affected the professional lives of the frontline workers but also their personal lives. This pandemic has been the most stressful time for all doctors as they have had to risk their own lives, do double shifts regularly and attend to corona patients.
These doctors were treated with utmost cruelty and inhumanity. Fearing that the virus might spread in the locality, doctors and frontline workers were pelted with stones to keep them away from their homes, and they had to spend night after night in COVID infected hospitals. Many doctors have lost their lives trying to save others but received no recognition or acknowledgment for their huge sacrifice for society. The government has provided them with certain facilities, but they are yet to receive the respect which is due.
