Connecticut: In the wake of the novel Coronavirus outbreak, it’s the doctors, nurses and the health workers who are working relentlessly all over the world as the virus is spreading uncontrollably day by day. Pledging their services as well as the lives for the sake of humanity, they are appealing everyone to stay back at home and flatten the curve.
Despite calling them as superheroes who have been working for long shifts and there are reports of medicos being attacked or being isolated by the common people just because they are treating Covid-19 patients.
However, a video has surfaced online showing heart-warming gesture of the people in the US thanking an Indian-origin doctor for her selfless service in a very special and unique way. Dr Uma Madhusudan, a Mysore origin doctor of Hartford Health care in Connecticut has been treating Covid-19 patients.
In the video, she is seen standing in front of her residence in South Windsor; a convoy of almost 100 vehicles including fire trucks, ambulances, police cars and private vehicles driving past her in appreciation. Some grateful patients, who have survived the Coronavirus infection, are seen holding “Thank You” placards honouring the doctor for her enormous service. The doctor can be seen waving at each of them and thanking them.
The video of the unique tribute to the doctor was shared on Twitter by businessman Harsh Goenka.
