‘Some heroes don’t wear capes, we call them doctors’

This one-liner said by an anonymous person is something we all have felt at some point or the other in our lives. Indeed, doctors play a significant role in our lives. The absolute first and the last event of a human are both certified by doctors, in maternity hospitals and morgue. A doctor is a person with extensive knowledge in the domain of medical science, who applies and dedicates his knowledge to identify the medical problem faced by the patient and then uses his skill to prevent or cure it.

Doctors are treated as gods to humankind. But this gods are not immortal but they are as mortal as you and I are. In shocking news, an octogenarian doctor has lost his life in Mumbai while treating coronavirus patients. The Indian doctor from Saifee Hospital had tested positive for COVID-19.
