On what it has been like working the frontlines during COVID-19:

Since the pandemic broke out, we were dealing with an unknown virus, and do not know when it will end. As a frontline worker, I was worried that I might get infected and pass it to my family. Thank God, with the endless support that the government has provided us with, I was able to overcome that state of fear and continue my duties.

Despite all the medical equipment, such as face masks, personal protective equipment and drugs provided by the Ministry of Health, I got infected, and I was admitted to the hospital, where I received all the necessary medical care until I was able to recover.
