Countries around the world are beginning the process of reopening their economies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. And for many people, this may signal a much-needed return to work. But for others, it’s simply a continuation of the tireless work they’ve been doing for the entire duration of the pandemic.
It’s been a long road for healthcare, EMS, and law enforcement professionals
While much of the world has been forced to shelter in place, our healthcare, Emergency Medical Services, and law enforcement professionals have been working non-stop to help keep us safe.
For healthcare and EMS workers, this has involved putting their own health and wellbeing in jeopardy as they work long hours in close quarters to treat those suffering with COVID-19. And as a result, the number of healthcare workers who have contracted the virus themselves is in the tens of thousands worldwide.
And for those in law enforcement, downtime simply has never been an option. Despite the pandemic, police officers have still taken to the streets each day to ensure the safety and security of people across the globe.
The level of gratitude that we here at Northern Specialty Supplies have for these people who have worked bravely to protect us all can’t be overstated.
Worldwide applause for healthcare and frontline workers
In the midst of the turbulence being caused by COVID-19, a small ray of positivity has emerged and spread across the world. People under quarantine have taken to literally applauding healthcare and frontline workers on a daily basis.
Beginning in mid-January in Wuhan, China, before extending to countries including Italy, France, England, Spain, India, Turkey, Canada, and many more, the phenomenon of people cheering in the evenings during shift-change has become a daily thank-you to healthcare and frontline workers from the people they’re working tirelessly to protect.
And it’s a message of gratitude which is well-deserved by the people who put their own wellbeing on the line to protect the rest of us.
There’s still more work to be done by everyone in minimizing the spread of COVID-19
But as economies begin to reopen, our healthcare, EMS, and law enforcement professionals are bracing for the possibility of another wave of COVID-19 outbreaks. For them, the continuation of their work in protecting us is inevitable. And so are the ongoing risks to their own health and wellbeing as a result of doing so.
So, while restrictions begin to loosen and things begin moving back towards normalcy, each of us still carries the responsibility of doing our part to minimize COVID-19’s potential impact on the heroic people who have spent the last few months making significant sacrifices in order to protect the rest of us.
Northern Specialty Supplies is proud to supply products that contribute to the flattening of the curve and help minimize the spread of COVID-19 in order to reduce the impact felt by our frontline workers.
And we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every healthcare, EMS, and law enforcement professional selflessly putting themselves at risk to keep us all safe.
