Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Michael Pitts, a father, has shared a moving story of his daughter who is among strained medics who have been attending to the needs of others instead of theirs.

He said that when he texted his oldest daughter to check up on her, she sent him a picture of her in the hospital, fully kitted in the COVID-19 response garb.

Michael said that despite the fact that he is concerned for his daughter’s wellbeing, his pride in what she is doing surpasses that.
