One of the doctors, Fardowso Mohamed Hassan, a 27-year-old nurse who spoke VOA said that while she was on duty at the isolation center marked Eid away from her husband.
“I am happy to be doing a life-saving job, which is more important than a celebration of any kind,” said Fardowso. “Although I did not celebrate with my husband, friends and relatives, it made my day to take time with my patients and my colleagues at work,” Fardowsa said.
