Putting some free time to good use, Samnang and Sothie were today discussing the appreciation of doctors and all levels of medical personnel who are heroically dealing with the pandemic. Every single minute of their career was devoted to combating the virus. This devotion will be respected and remembered by the general public. 

Sothie: Hey Samnang! We have both been following the updates and news regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. On the other side, the doctors and medical staff are the ones directly dealing with the issue. They are the frontiersmen, metaphorically speaking. Is not that a thing, Samnang? 

Samnang: Indeed, Sothie. Doctors and medical staff have invested their time tirelessly to contain the virus. Day and night, these personnel tend to their duties without complaining about the situation. While we are staying indoors working, they are risking their lives out there dealing face-to-face with the virus that the rest of us can just talk about and read about. Based on what I know from the online media news outlets, 50 patients in Cambodia who were infected by the COVID-19 have successfully recovered from the infection. Meanwhile, about 64 other COVID-19 infected patients are still being monitored. Regarding these differences in numbers, I can that the doctors and other medical personnel are performing their duties very well. 

Sothie: If you support those medical personnel, do you have anything to help them in return? 

Samnang: I, myself, do not have anything much to help them. However, my sincere gratitude, respect and appreciation deep from the very bottom of my heart towards doctors, nurses and all the medical staff involved for their devotion – that is what I can offer. Furthermore, with all my respect and my intention to relieve the pressure from their medical work, I and my family decided to stay indoors as much as possible and to reduce social gatherings in order to slow down the virus and help the doctors put an end to these microscopic killers.
