Thanks to the global outbreak of the coronavirus, many have been taking preventive precautions to the next level such as by emptying out grocery stores in fear that the Wuhan virus outbreak may cause food shortages and selling face masks for over 20 times the cost.
But what’s most sad is the fact that people are starting to shun medical staff who work tirelessly to care for those infected with the virus, all while risking their own health.
A good example of this is Peng Cheng Yu, a nurse. Her husband, Yeo Yeu Ann took to his Facebook page to share how his wife was shunned while she was taking public transport as the other passengers feared the possibility that she may have contracted the virus while caring for those tested positive.
So proud of my lovely wife @jesuslovescy as she goes off to work each day. Thing is, she’s noticed that ppl on the train…
He wrote, “So proud of my lovely wife as she goes off to work each day. Thing is, she’s noticed that people on the train have been giving her quite a bit of space. Not that she minds the extra space, but she is a bit concerned about causing worry to others while wearing her uniform on the train, so from what I know, she’s been thinking of changing into her home clothes before she boards the train. That’s her – so thoughtful and considerate of others.
But still, do not be afraid, friends, of our nurses who don their uniforms. The nurse uniform should be something to be proud of and respected and admired in public, especially during such a time as this.”
The loving husband found the sweetest way to comfort his wife while she wears her nurse uniform in public.
“That’s why, I nowadays try to hold her hand even more and draw her closer to me especially when she’s wearing her uniform – because she’s a NURSE and I am SO PROUD OF HER. Heck, she even spends time visiting the homeless to check on their health too and educate them,” he proudly wrote.
He also left a special message to those who have been fearing the presence of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in public.
“Looks, let’s not be fools. Nurses and doctors take much more careful precautions about hygiene and wash their hands much more. It’s their own health on the line and the least we can do is honour and love them and find ways to support them. So brother and sisters, if your wife or husband, girlfriend or boyfriend is a nurse or doctor, do encourage them and support them in whatever love languages they have. Hold their hands in public, affirm them and help them with whatever chores they have, buy them coffee or just spend a good time over a delicious meal. Pray with them, too!”
Such a loving and devoted husband Peng Cheng Yu has and how lucky they are to have each other.
And come on, guys, medical professionals risk their own well being everyday in order to heal and save the lives of our loved ones, hence, we should show them our appreciation and respect instead of shunning them. So, next time you see a nurse or doctor on the train, shake their hands because they’ve probably washed their hands already.
Have you washed your hands already?
