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.
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.
