Photo Of Healthcare Workers Flying To NY Amid COVID-19 Crisis Takes Internet By Storm

As COVID-19 infections in New York continue to spike, image of more than dozens of medical workers from Atlanta who flew to NY to provide help has gone viral.


As the coronavirus infections in New York continue to increase, the picture of more than dozens of medical workers from Atlanta who flew to New York to provide additional help has gone viral. Not only are the people applauding the “brave souls” for contributing against the fatal COVID-19 but people also ‘adored’ their smile along with the enthusiasm. The image was posted by South West Airlines on Instagram and since then it has been shared by various people across social media platforms hailing the frontline fighters of the pandemic. As of March 30, the United States has confirmed at least 142,637  coronavirus cases and 2,485 fatalities.

The caption said, “While so many of us continue to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, no one knows what is happening quite like our medical professionals. These brave souls soldier on in the midst of tremendous risk and exposure, constantly putting the needs of others above their own.”

It added, “ Their selfless sacrifice is a beacon of light during such a dark time in our world, and no amount of gratitude and praise would ever be enough. Because of their courage, our family, our friends, our coworkers, our neighbours, and more have a fighting chance.”

Heartbreaking plea by NHS doctor

While the doctors from Atlanta were hailed for standing up in need for New York, an NHS doctor from London posted a selfie with marks on her face due to wearing masks for prolonged hours for “begging people” to practice the essential precautionary measures. Natalie Silvey is reportedly an anaesthetic registrar working in London and that her face is of someone who spent at least nine hours in personal protective equipment and urged people to do social distancing. The post took several rounds on the internet and many other doctors also started posting pictures of the “pain” they go through while treating people with coronavirus.
