·4 min read
The coronavirus is taking a serious toll on the doctors and nurses risking their lives while treating infected patients.
Moving in and out of negative-pressure rooms, putting on protective equipment and taking it off again, nurses are caring for patients who are severely ill and sometimes dying. They spend the greatest amount of time with the patients.

Here we take a closer look at some of the brave men and women who are on the front lines battling this virus.
