My Fifteen Minutes of Fame

Prabina Basnet

This writing is based upon my personal experience during the pandemic. It depicts the reality of how health personnel working in the health facilities are being treated in our community during this challenging time. Besides the work - related stress, health workers have been facing immense emotional and psychological stress at their home and society. I have tried to represent the stories of many such health professionals who have been isolated from the society and whose family have been threatened not to let them enter their home. Despite the risk imposed upon me and my parents of getting COVID - 19, I volunteered to serve the community in this dire situation by providing health check - ups to the patients at my home, responding to every phone call and text, distributing medicines and conducting awareness raising sessions regarding healthy lifestyle including ways of preventing the virus transmission. Initially, I was appreciated for all these efforts by the people in my community when I was working from my home. But the recognition was limited only for a short period of time. Soon, this admiration turned into fear and hated when I started working in a hospital.
