Late last year 2019, China was grappling with the emergence of this virus; little did we know the world would join in the fight to conquer for victory. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty in breathing says World Health Organisation (WHO).
Doctors, nurses, virologists, physicians, medical assistants, and all other health worker are our lifeline after God. The magic of their resolve, the swiftness of their hands and the strength of their spirit is commendable. They have exhibited bravery and offered their lives to providing medical care for those infected by the virus.

This is the voice of a front line doctor in Italy, the worst hit country. Many like her have committed their lives to reducing the havoc of Covid 19 in the world.
