Coronavirus health workers: Fears and fighting Covid-19 around the world – BBC World Service

published on July 9, 2020

Really I never saw such a thing beforebut I'm remembering the days when wefought against Isis I've neverexperienced anything like this beforThe hard thing to do is to make choicesbetween helping one patient or anotherI think the most emotional moment for mewas when I first answered the calls fromrelatives of patients, because patientsare not allowed to receive any visitorsThey can only get some news from us when they call us once per day So the firsttime I answered the phone I could reallyfeel that the voice of the other person

Who was full of hope and I also justwanted to give them some good newsYou see a lot of people dying even if theywere completely healthy We feel very very helplessit is stressful to be a doctorMost of the hospitals in the three main regions: Lombardy, Piedmont and the Veneto,we do not have any place inhospital anymore It's even worse thanthe war I have to say that I never criedI have kind of anaesthesia As it comes

Later with soldiers when they go to warand then they have PTSD when they comeback at home, it will probably be thesame for usI'm scared too, but of course I'm here to serve and I'm readyWorking as a nurseduring this pandemic is stressfulWe already have a nursing shortage andCovid-19 patients are not the onlyones being admitted to the hospital

Being a doctor is not being a machine Wehave feelings and we are afraid morethan you We have the shortage of thepersonal protective equipmentSurgical masks, head cover, shoe cover, surgical gown and gloves with gogglesReally I never saw such a thing before but it reminds me of the days when we fought against IsisThe hospitals were full of soldiers, sonow it is the turn of the doctors tostart protecting the people against thisenemy

I had a patient who was hospitalisedbecause she has a kidney problemand I couldn't resolve it because allthe technicians and medical personal onthe ward, they got positive for Covid-19The hard thing to do is to make choicesbetween helping one patient over anotherThose are the things that a doctorshould never perform But in thispandemic we're forced to Sometimes wehave to choose whom and how to take care of a person

They really made my day and sometimesthey almost made me cryThe amount of love and appreciation that has been shown – it has been amazingPlease, stay at homeJust waitWe have to choose betweenwhat is easy and what is rightEvery person who can decide to follow all the rules can be the hero of this time
