Social Media | Mohamad Zalzale

Exhausted medical staff stood in silence to bid farewell to a nurse who just passed away after contracting the coronavirus. She is the second medical worker to leave us while saving the lives of others.

Many Lebanese doctors have given their lives fighting the pandemic. The majority of them were abroad, in Belgium, Brazil, France, Kuwait, and so on. 

However, has just registered the loss of its second medical worker. After recently losing the martyr Dr. Louay Ismail, we now say goodbye to Zainab Haidar. 

She was a nurse at the Zahraa Hospital in . She is the first registered nurse to pass due to the coronavirus. Like Louay, she died young. She was only 47 years old when she died in

In a tweet, Dr. , head of the RHUH, said, “Another martyr the medical and nursing body offered in the line of duty. Zainab is a heroine, one of us, and now she is in a better place. God rest her soul and grant her family patience and solace.”

.He also expressed his wish that the people and officials of be aware of the dangers facing the country and abide by the safety measures

With little warning, jumped right into the second wave of the coronavirus crisis. The nation is slowly readjusting to lockdown once again.

However, many people are not taking it as seriously as they did the first time. And that can be dangerous.
