WATCH: Empire State Building Turned Into Massive Emergency Light In Dedication To Emergency Workers

Countries around the world have been paying tribute to their respective emergency services & health care workers as they face unprecedented ‘mass casualties’ from the COVID-19 virus. 

The rate at which people are succumbing to COVID-19 after being admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICUs) around the world is genuinely shocking. 

We have seen and heard stories about healthcare professionals who huddle together and cry at the end of their shifts as they try and care for people who are fighting a disease which, other than the bodies own immune system, has no cure or treatment.

This is one of the reasons as to why it so important that we show our solidarity with the amazing men and women who are on the front line in the fight against COVID-19.

So videos like the one below will mean a lot to the first responders and medical staff who are trying to save as many lives as possible. 

And remember; COVID-19 can be stopped in its tracks if we stay indoors, keep to the two-metre rule when out shopping and if we wash our hands as often as possible and at the very least if we wash our hands before touching our mouth, nose or eyes. 

We owe it to the men and women who are risking their own lives to try and save others, to keep to and follow the necessary instructions outlined above.

They do not have the luxury of staying indoors with their loved ones. 

They are going out every day and facing the virus that we are all trying to avoid. 

Amazing 💙 Respect

History will never forget the sacrifices which medical professionals and first responders are making right now to try and save as many people as possible. 

No matter who we are, or how busy we are, we can all spare a minute to celebrate our NHS and those looking after us during these challenging times 🌈🙌🏽 This is our officers showing their support outside Northumberland Specialist Emergency Care Hospital (NSEC) in Cramlington. #ClapForCarers #StayHomeSaveLives
