Unsung Heroes of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Battleground

Yesterday, Thursday, 26th March, at 4pm, millions of Britons joined a Clap for Carers movement initiated by a Dutch woman, Annemarie Plas in South London. They clapped , banged on makeshift drums and displayed banners outside their homes to show support and appreciation for the hundreds of doctors, nurses and other health-care workers wo risk their lives every day in the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. You can read the full story here. clap for carers People have been offering similar tributes to health care workers in the Netherlands, France and Spain. This movement of appreciation for carers in the front line is spreading all over the world in the wake of the corona pandemic. In Pakistan today at 6pm, a similar tribute to health care workers is planned. While you join hands to thank these professionals, do say a prayer for all the unsung heroes who have been keeping things running smoothly behind the scenes and otherwise. In most parts of the world, in various stages of isolation, lockdown and quarantine, groceries are available, garbage is removed and many other essential services continue. All these people who are working to keep us in the safety and comfort of our homes during the lockdown are also deserving of a tribute equal to health care workers. Some of these people are: Those who are working to maintain an uninterrupted chain of groceries, fruit and vegetables. Workers making sanitisation products and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Delivery, courier, postal workers etc. Sanitary workers, trash collectors and others working in garbage disposal.   Do say a prayer for all these people, thank them, and wish them well. two women clapping

A heartfelt thank you to all those working on the battlefront as well as behind the scenes in the Coranavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

We are safer and healthier because of you.
