Doctors from the LNJP Hospital who were staying at the Lalit Hotel during off duty hours shared their experience of dealing with coronavirus pandemic and emotional struggle of not being able to see their families.

Dr Anupriya, one of the doctors treating Covid-19 patients at LNJP Hospital, had not gone home for 5 days. She told India Today that her video-call with her husband became a very emotional exchange.

Dr Anupriya and her husband unusually celebrated their wedding anniversary. "My husband told me that we would cut the cake online to celebrate our wedding anniversary that was coming in few days," she said battling her emotions.

Dr Kapil, whose family stays in Maharashtra, said, "My parents called me up from Nagpur several times. But I was not able to take their calls. Covered in PPE, I couldn't attend their calls while on duty. The family was worried about us but our duty is supreme and beyond any fear."

Dr Sarwari explaining the mental trauma of Covid-19 patients kept in isolation, she said, "We are alone because we have to be with the patients. They are alone because they are the patients. It is hard but you have to empathize with them. It is our duty and we understand where they are coming from."
