A worried daughter takes to Instagram to share an inspiring story about her father and other medical professionals who are combating COVID-19 all over the world.

Natalie Kuhn shared an inspiring picture of her father on Instagram. Natalie expressed her worry about her Pulmonologist father, who works every day, in the COVID-19 Ground Zero. Her caption read:

"My dad is a pulmonologist in the ICU. He works every day in the COVID Ground Zero...Thank you to all medical professionals. Everywhere."

The picture Natalie posted featured her father with two of his fellow health workers. All three of them, in a warm embrace, wore bright smiles despite their grim situation at work.

Kuhn wrote that her father had called her and explained what he understood her fear and panic. He described fear as something that could motivate while panic was chaos.


This profound message stemmed from an experience that the man had while working. Natalie's father narrated a story in which he had received unsettling news that incited panic in him. He thankfully broke through the panic and earnestly returned focus to salvaging the situation.


Health professionals continue to battle the pandemic despite the ugly truth they must face.

Dr. Esther Choo, MD, MPH, an emergency room doctor and an associate professor at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland revealed that as more coronavirus patients troop in, healthcare workers were going to have a higher fatality rate.


Choo disclosed that several workers were beginning to have difficult discussions with their families about who will take care of their kids when they were gone. She said:

"We are going to have a higher fatality rate among other health workers, so there's just this kind of grim reality...and I think people are reasonably anxious."

Choo opened up about contingency plans she and her husband, a radiologist, had been putting in place in preparation for the worst-case scenario, as they share four young kids.


All around the world, immense gratitude for medical employees has been expressed. On March 31st, the Empire State building paid thoughtful tribute to first responders in the city and around the world.

The New York City landmark had a siren-like light revolving around its needle. New York has, unfortunately, become the epicenter for the disease in the US as more than sixty thousand people have tested positive.

A retired doctor in England, Alfa Saadu, lost his life after he returned to the field to help treat coronavirus patients. Tragic events like this are what the families of these heroes, like Natalie Kuhn, fear.
