Health Editor’s Note: These are the faces of 900 health care workers, just in the U.S. who are now dead. Numbers of dead health care workers are mounting in all countries across the world. We are loosing so many people to coronavirus and we have lost those who everyday know that they are being exposed to COVID-19 while taking care of their patients.
We were not prepared to deal with COVID-19, a pandemic, and for the most part medical care as been treating symptoms and then trying to play catch up when blood starts clotting, lungs shut down, body systems stop working. COVID-19 has been a great ‘uknown’ as it adds to its bag of ways to harm the human body. This is not your common cold coronavirus.
Please take the time to look at the faces of these selfless individuals who ultimately gave their lives while doing their jobs, jobs that they probably loved to do. They all had lives and a story that has now come to an end, other than for those who remember them and will not forget them. Know that we continue to have health care workers sickened by coronavirus and all we can do is hope that they will not die for their efforts on behalf of taking care of us, the American public.
All of these now deceased healthcare workers would have told you to wash your hands, stay away from other people, wear a mask, and would have given anything to not be a portion of this statistic. Their families, friends, coworkers, all want them back. Living, breathing, hard working healthcare workers all say the same things….’wear that mask, wash those hands and physically distance yourself from other humans.’ All of our lives depend on not giving COVID-19 more ammunition to feed its satanic flame…..Carol
