‘I treat the patients' children carefully as my kids. We just receive the emergency cases, who maybe die if they do not take their treatment due to cancer disease that they have.
So they need the chemotherapy or transfusion to be alive .we contact them before coming to the hospital to take the precautions' measures.
After they arrive at the hospital, we began to sterilize them completely, help them to wear the mask and the medical gown.
Then we divide the treatment times to avoid the Overstock of patients. We take care of social distancing among them during their therapy, and we emphasize the precaution's measures in all steps of treatment till they leave the hospital’.
On the other hand, the patients who do not have to come to the hospital because it is sufficient to treat them over the phone by giving them instructions on the treatment's methods after sending it to them.

So, hospitals are considered as a straightforward place for infection's spread. Besides, some of the medical's staff I work with are infected with the virus.
I cannot be absent or just stay at home because it is my duty. Eman added, “It is a trust that God has blessed me with, so I must come to stand instead of my colleagues, who cannot attend because of the curfew in the strip. Who will help the patients and children if we do not cooperate?”
