Not every superhero wears capes. Sometimes, they wear scrubs and sterile gloves with surgical masks going up against their eyes. Not all of them carry weapons or who have the resilience that can weather the most relentless of battles. Most of them bring compassion, patience, and understanding in their chosen field where they are ready to use their knowledge and expertise in the field of medicine, disease control, and healthcare.
The global public health epidemic COVID-19 has called for a different kind of superhero to arise: the front liners and health professionals who continue to be at the forefront of this battle against an unseen disease. They continue to monitor and do their best to overcome this virus outbreak in many places around the world, without any complete guarantee of their protection.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is easy to let negative thoughts and feelings step in. As of this writing, the coronavirus continues to spread. Many countries are under quarantine, people don’t go to work, educational institutions remain closed, and life is far from the old norms.
If you feel scared, then you’re not alone.
It can be challenging to remain positive and optimistic during times of crisis, but it is important to your mental well-being and immune system. Currently, due to the challenges created by the Coronavirus pandemic, even people with the warmest viewpoints may have a hard time staying optimistic. Still being hopeful in the face of social distancing and isolation, dystopian and constant news about the virus, potential income loss, communal grief, vagueness, and touching fear, requires conscious effort and continued awareness.
What’s even more evident is that by showing their support during the crisis, different groups, businesses, and institutions have a role to play in facilitating that optimism. With that being said, encouraging everyone to support our superheroes in times like this seems to be the right thing to do.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is the leading director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIH) appointed in position in 1984. He advised multiple presidents in the past, Democratic and Republican, and worked a critical role in the government’s response to the AIDS epidemic. Now who has been considered the top COVID-19 expert in the nation, also the director of National Allergy and Infectious Diseases Institute, decides to sell his bobblehead to the world. The custom doctor bobbleheads will help them feel the appreciation and the support of what they are sacrificing for the world.
Not only that, but Dr. Fauci will also donate $5 for each selling Fauci bobbleheads for additional funds to buy more in-hospital medical supplies.
We think that Dr. Fauci deserves a bobblehead based on himself given what he has done and consistently works for the country and the world in the battle against the pandemic COVID-19.
We did know how serious the situation is for front liners COVID-19 and for those whose livelihoods were affected by the changes in lockdown and transport. Somehow, we wanted to be helped by these bobbleheads.
