Bhasha Mukherjee, who was crowned Miss England last year, has returned back to the UK to work as a doctor during the novel coronavirus outbreak. The 24-year-old Indian-origin doctor, who was working for various charities overseas, came back to fight on the frontline during the pandemic.

Mukherjee, who represented England in the Miss World pageant in December 2019, had taken a break as a junior doctor.

"I was invited to Africa, to Turkey, then to India, Pakistan and several other Asian countries to be an ambassador for various charity work," said Mukherjee.

She was planning to take a break till August this year. However, after the novel coronavirus outbreak, she decided to come back to the UK from India. The decision came after the situation back home started worsening and her old colleagues at the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston told her what they were going through. She immediately contacted the hospital's management team to let them know that she wanted to return to work.

Reportedly, she felt it was not justifiable that she wore her Miss England crown, while her colleagues were working so hard and people around the world were dying from the novel coronavirus.

"When you are doing all this humanitarian work abroad, you're still expected to put the crown on, get ready... look pretty. I wanted to come back home. I wanted to come and go straight to work. I felt a sense of this is what I'd got this degree for and what better time to be part of this particular sector than now. It was incredible the way the whole world was celebrating all key workers, and I wanted to be one of those, and I knew I could help. There's no better time for me to be Miss England and helping England at a time of need, " she said.

Before returning to work, Mukherjee is apparently self-isolating for one to two weeks. She holds a specialization in respiratory medicine.
