Our healthcare workers are the frontline of defense against COVID-19. Unfortunately, this also puts them at risk since they are in constant contact with patients.

Our healthcare professionals risk their lives and must practice utmost caution when dealing with COVID-19 patients.

That’s why it’s absolutely crucial to be completely transparent and honest with your doctor about your medical history. If you have any kind of contact with a suspected COVID-19 patient, practice caution and let your healthcare worker know immediately.

The virus knows no bounds. Regardless of race, religion, or wealth, you have a chance of catching the coronavirus.

For now, be vigilant and err on the side of caution. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
