Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a 23-year-old surgeon from India identified as Shifa M Mohammed postponed her wedding and decided to serve coronavirus patients at an isolation centre.
Dr Shifa was supposed to tie the knot on March 29 but chose to work on that day to take care of her patients at the isolation centre. She is a house surgeon at the Pariyaram Medical College Hospital in Kannur.
The surgeon said her marriage can wait, but not her patients who are struggling in isolation wards.
