Combating COVID

Prajna is a doctor in the Bronx. At the beginning of the pandemic, she was asked to leave her clinic and help out at the hospital which was being swamped with COVID cases. Each day, she entered the hospital and faced this terrifying and mysterious illness. She cared for patients who were unable to see their loved ones. Each day, she found the strength to return and face their fear, grief, and illness. And each night, she went home to her family and did her best to keep them safe from the disease and the images that would not leave her mind.

The red in this piece represents Prajna’s strength as she retuned to the frightening scenes at the hospital each day and the black represents the fear and grief she faced there. To see the piece about her life at home during the early days of the pandemic, click here.
