How we respond, or don’t respond, to the reality of the virus will specifically determine the course of how we live and die during the first half of the 21st century.

Most of us are not fully aware of the extent and nature of the virus crisis. For example, medical workers are directly in danger as they deal with caring for those of us who are ill. Doctors and nurses who are treating virus patients, statistically are the professional segment most affected by resultant illness and, unfortunately, death.

Hospital workers (from housekeepers and maintenance personnel to physicians, technicians, and everybody in between), these are the heroes. While most of us stay home, they go to the medical battle front every day.

Imagine, the healers are the ones most susceptible to becoming a victim of the virus. Can you imagine, going to work everyday to help others and knowing that your therapeutic work could also be your own death sentence?

Medical practitioners are so dedicated to helping others, that despite the risks they face, they go to work anyway. Healthy or un-well, we all owe medical workers and associated crew, a deep and very sincere “asante sana” (thank you very much).
