'Hand of God': Brazil nurses come up with an innovative way to depict 'human touch' for COVID-19 patients
Rio De Janeiro: The novel coronavirus really baffled the world when it was first detected in China's Wuhan. No one had seen or heard about anything like it. Its symptoms paralyzed the social order as social distancing was made all the more necessary so that one does not get infected. It is all the more difficult for those who become prey to the deadly virus. Their days are spent in isolation, away from their loved ones. Their plight can be understood especially by the doctors and nurses. All they need is a warm embrace or just holding their hand to let them know that it will all pass. In Brazil, the nurses in a hospital there came up with an innovative way that depicts 'human touch' for those who are affected by the virus. There was no technology involved in making this. They just needed two disposable gloves to do the trick. The gloves were tied together and filled to the bring with hot water. Then, it was attached to the patient's hand, making them feel that they are not alone. Take a look. (Image Credits: Twitter)This was posted by the opinion editor of Gulf News, Sadiq Bhat. His caption said, "Nurses trying to comfort isolated patients in a Brazilian Covid isolation ward. Two disposable gloves tied, full of hot water, simulating impossible human contact. Salute to the front liners and a stark reminder of the grim situation our world is in!"Appropriately, he called it the 'hand of God.' The picture represents hope. It is a ray of sunshine that is coming out of the clouds of despair surrounding us at the moment. For this reason, the photo went viral not just on the microblogging site, but on other social media platforms as well. Netizens were moved by the compassion shown by the healthcare workers as they risk themselves to save the world's lives. "Heart touching and caring thought but grim too. when will our countrymen learn to wear mask and social distancing? It's spreading, it's killing, it's affecting bad but people were and still are careless," one user said. Another one added, "How wonderfully creative and compassionate!"Here's hoping these patients get well soon so that they can receive a warm and tight hug from their loved ones soon enough.
