- Healthcare workers around the globe have been sharing their photos, showing their bruises and tired faces after long hours of treating patients infected with coronavirus (COVID-19).
- Protective masks and goggles make deep marks and scars on their faces as serve for hours every day to assist their patients.
- They hope that through these photos, other people will be reminded to “stay at home” to help minimize the spread of the virus.
As most people across the world are currently stuck at the comfort of their homes and watching movies, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers are working long hours in the hospitals, fighting tirelessly against the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).
To reiterate their public reminder for everyone to stay home, doctors and nurses have shared their selfies, showing deep marks on their faces from wearing their protective gears and goggles the whole day.
Case in point, Natalie Silvey of London showed her face after working a 9-hour-shift in the hospital.
Emma Sterba of Kent, England, commented on Silvey’s post, and said that she can relate with her experience.
Nicola Sgarbi of Italy shared his picture on Facebook after working for 13 hours in the ICU. Sgarbi however said that he does not consider himself a hero. He was doing it because he is passionate about his job.
Martina Benedetti of Italy also shared that the protective gears were extremely hot inside and you can feel your breath, drops of sweat falling from your face inside the plastic glasses. She also said that the waterproof coat was bigger and heavier, but she needed to make an effort to move “fast and snappy”.
Alessia Bonari of Milan, Italy, showed her bruises in her Instagram pic:
“I am physically tired because the protective devices are bad, the lab coat makes me sweat, and once dressed, I can no longer go to the bathroom or drink for six hours,” Bonari lamented.
Megan Patterson of Ohio said she’s afraid that their hospital is already running out of resources and protective gears.
