COVID-19 Pandemic may be tough on us as commoners as we have never been compelled to sit at home, however, if you feel low, think about those several health professionals who are facing difficult times balancing professionally yet keeping their own selves and families safe.
Dr Sachin Nayak, one doctor from Bhopal is being hailed on social media for living out of his car to ensure his family does not get infected. The Madhya Pradesh doctor has also been praised by the state’s chief minister.
Dr Nayak, who is working at the state-run JP Hospital in Bhopal, decided to start living out of his car to avoid spreading the infection at home in case he caught it at work. After returning from duty each day, he would plonk himself on a mattress spread over the reclined back seat. Soaps, laptops, chargers, clothes, tooth brush, towel were all inside the car.

Dr Nayak also replied to the CM’s tweet saying,
Serving patients is supreme. Each one of us are striving to secure our state people, all we request you is to stay at home. Kadam Kadam Badhaye Ja, Khushi Ke Geet Gaaye Ja.

Dr Nayak from the Anaesthesia Department at the hospital told The Hindu that this was not by choice but by compulsion. He said,
It was a compulsion… I didn’t have a choice.
The hospital first tended to incoming patients, which overwhelmed its resources, and then made arrangements for doctors as other city-based hospitals eased its initial load. After performing duty in isolation wards for a few days, doctors are required to quarantine themselves to rule out the possibility of infecting patients and family members. He adds,

Of course, you can’t go back home after working in such a hazardous environment. Therefore it’s better to be away.
