Doctor dies of Covid-19 contracted while treating patients

Front-line health care workers face a high risk of contracting the coronavirus, and scores have become sick. But it is less known about how many have died from the virus after working closely with Covid-19 patients. Madhvi Aya, 61, an Indian doctor who immigrated to U.S. and worked as a physicians assistant died after contracting COVID-19 treating patients in Brooklyn

At 61 years of age, she was part of the at risk population. She knew that she was putting herself at risk and took that risk anyway. At 61 and a doctor, she wasnt working for the money either, but for duty. I commend her. She's a great American.

“Fireman dies in fire” “Local soldier dies in war” I appreciate the courage it takes to do what they do, I honestly do - and I appreciate the jobs they do because somebody has to, but they know the risks going in. Why is this news?

Her family should've been able to see her in the hospital. The same if true for everyone else in hospitals either dying, giving birth, etc. In the future hospitals, or even individuals, should purchase reusable, laminated hazmat suits(cost is $75 during all this, so probably lower outside demand), goggles or face shield, and filters at least, for this exact kindve situation. One P95 mask(paint mask) normally costs $20 and can be used for 40 hours. I dont know if hospitals are blocking loved ones who have all the required PPE and more, probably are, but people shouldn't die alone if its it's at all avoidable.

U have no choice when u take ur hippocratic oath seriously... She represents the bold n bravest... N to belame her for doing her job is like blaming a firefighter for going into a fire to save lives... Those who belame her have a problem with morality
