Across the globe, the front line healthcare providers are working around the clock to save the lives of those infected by the deadly COVID-19.

There’s also been fear of infection due to lack of enough protective equipment including masks.

This reality is more frightening for pregnant health-care providers as it is still not clear whether they are at greater risk of getting sick from the virus.


However, a photo of pregnant medics who have been reporting to work every single day may just be the face of the sacrifice by medical personnel as the coronavirus crisis escalates.

The photos attracted praises across the globe, with many praising the two for their sacrifice.

One Scott Dworkin while responding to a doctor’s experience of working on the frontline while pregnant appreciated them describing their act as ‘absolutely amazing’.

“Not all heroes wear capes. There are healthcare workers like Dr Kate Otto Chebly who are 8 months pregnant, working around the clock to fight the coronavirus. Help me make this string below viral, so we can serve up some inspiration for everyone today. This is absolutely amazing,” he wrote on Twitter.

Recently, US President Barack Obama applauded one medic who moved out of his family house to live in a garage in a bid to avoid infecting her family members with COVID-19.

Rachel Patzer had tweeted that her spouse who is a physician in the emergency department and actively treating COVID-19 patients was forced to isolate and move into their garage apartment for the foreseeable future as he continues to treat patients.

“We owe a profound debt of gratitude to all our health professionals and everybody who’ll be on the front lines of this pandemic for a long while. They’re giving everything. May we all model our own behaviour on their selflessness and sacrifice as we help each other through this,” Obama said while responding to Patzer’s tweet.
