Life Inside COVID's Den, A Nurse's Perspective

Kusum


Abstract: I was looking through the window of COVID ICU and I realize I might see someone die, I did not know who that patient was but I was filled with immense grief as she edged closer to death by the hour, what I did not know yet was by the time I leave after 8 hours I would witness two more deaths. The vaccine offers hope but the sad truth is that the virus continues its brutal slaughter inside the ICU?s all over the world, and the health workers are over worked, underpaid and emotionally as well as mentally traumatised in this pandemic situation after witnessing so much of deaths. Besides these they fear infecting their near and dear ones or themselves falling prey to the deadly foe. Its war out there but no cease fire in the horizon.
