MÉRIDA, YUCATAN (August 16, 2020).- Contrary to what one might think, the Covid-19 areas of Merida’s hospitals are not gloomy places where pessimism prevails, but these are rather spaces where all human emotions are present, including joy, solidarity, and enthusiasm to get ahead.
There are thousands of cases of doctors and medical staff who treated and comforted patients who were fighting a tough battle against the coronavirus and in the end were able to fully recover. Although the virus has claimed the lives of more than 1,600 people in our state, it must also be said that almost 10,000 patients have recovered.
Via inbox, the friend of a doctor from the Ignacio García Téllez hospital of the IMSS (better known as “La T-1“) sent him the following message of encouragement through local news website “Yucatan Ahora” and social networks.
This message is noteworthy because doctors and nurses are almost always spoken of as health heroes, but alongside them, support workers, such as orderlies, medical assistants, nurses, paramedics, ambulance drivers, laboratory workers, janitors, who are generally forgotten, fight shoulder to shoulder with the doctors and specialists against this plague every single day, Monday through Sunday, around the clock.
Here is the message from Janetitha Diiaz to her friend:
