A 73-year-old doctor is being hailed as ‘frontline hero’ for continuously working in emergency rooms to cure coronavirus patients in Texas, United States. A White House correspondent took to Twitter to share the picture of her physician father who is working in the midst of coronavirus crisis.

Kristin Fisher said that her father has been working in the Emergency Room and when she asked how he was doing, he sent a picture of himself. She said that she burst into tears after seeing the picture. In the picture posted on Twitter, Fisher’s father can be seen standing in the doctor’s uniform with his mask on.

“I called him to say I was worried about him, but could barely speak as I fought to keep my voice steady. I think we all have a moment where the gravity of what’s happening finally hits us. This was mine,” said the journalist.
