The coronavirus outbreak has paralyzed the entire nation. People are forced to stay at home. The number of infected keeps growing with every day that goes by. Over half a million people tested positive for coronavirus. Over 26,000 people died. The NBA suspended the regular season. Players stay at home, waiting for an update on the situation. NFL officials have banned meetings. Teams can’t meet free agents. Everything is frozen. Offseason team activities are postponed until further notice. The situation is more than serious. No one is safe. What about the medical staff? These people are in the front line. Medical professionals work with people infected with coronavirus. These people are afraid to go home because they may be carrying the virus on their bodies. Doctors, nurses, health experts, EMTs and other professionals try to do their best to stop the spreading of the virus.
They are front line workers. They risk their lives day and night. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady took to his Twitter to acknowledge the exertion of these professionals. This was his way of saying ‘thank you.’
“To all the doctors, nurses, EMTs, and other health care workers on the front lines, thank you. We can all make a big impact by taking care of ourselves and each other.”
Medical professionals help during the coronavirus outbreak
Brady encourages people to stay safe and take care of themselves. He told his fans to wash their hands and avoid social contact. We can do this to help medical professionals in their efforts. These people work all the time to treat infected individuals. They don’t even look at the clock. All they care about is save someone’s life.
“After Trump told governors that his administration was ready to be the “backup” for states in crisis, Inslee spoke up and said to the president,” Jonathan Lemire wrote on Twitter. “’We don’t need a backup. We need a Tom Brady.’”
NFL stars can use their platform to spread positivity and help people understand the severity of the situation. It’s a tough situation for everyone. There’s no room for panic and anxiety. We can only hope for the best and wash our hands regularly.
