On Tuesday the 7th of April citizens and Residents of the UAE celebrated the annual World Health Day. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the president of the United Arab Emirates took a moment to pay his respects to the healthcare professionals who are leading the fight against Coronavirus.
World Health Day during the pandemic
Every year people from all countries across the globe gather in spirit. In order to celebrate the tireless efforts of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers.
This year those medical professionals are facing what may just be the biggest healthcare crisis of their entire lives. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic swept across the world incredibly swiftly, bringing death and disorder along with it. Medical facilities are strained beyond belief and those vital workers prove the ultimate sacrifice by giving themselves up to the fight against the virus.
This year World Health Day celebrated the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. Without them and their efforts against the virus the entire world would be in a much worse position.
Sheikh Mohammed expresses his thanks
The Sheikh tweeted a touching tribute to the hardworking medical professionals of the UAE. The World Health Day is observed today amid exceptional circumstances experienced by the entire globe. Allocating one day, a month or a year is not enough to thank healthcare providers who risk their lives for people’s lives. They stay away from their families and stay in their hospitals so that people stay safe in their homes. May Allah bless you to protect people”.
In these troubling times, it is especially important to show thanks and appreciation for the people working hardest to save lives. Sheikh Mohammed has continuously heaped praise upon those brave souls who give themselves up daily to the resistance against Coronavirus. Earlier in March, the Sheikh invited citizens and residents of the UAE to express their gratitude to healthcare workers with the hashtag #ThankYouHeroes.
