Sheikha Almazmi speaks to the media during her interview.
Sheikha Almazmi, a role model for the Emirati nurses on humanitarian service, has described her duties in a video message to the society during the coronavirus pandemic.
The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (Mohap) shared the video and said, “Sheikha Almazmi, a role model for the Emirati nurse in humanitarian duty.
“Her smile is a source of optimism and her work is a source of pride for her family, and is highly appreciated by the country’s leadership and people.
Thank you, our first line of defence heroes.”
Almazmi works at Kuwait Hospital in Sharjah.
Her mother said, “I feel for her, but you know she helps others at the same time.”
On working away from home at a crucial time, Almazmi said, “This makes me worried about being far from family because I fear for them.”
Her mother said, “I miss her and worry about her at the same time. I keep thinking of her and what she feels. I know she is strong… She is a real asset to her country.
“We are proud that our people are our first line of defence.”
Almazmi said, “All I think about is saving patients’ lives. It is a matter of life and death. It is my time to help the nation.
“We all are one. It is the time to return the favour to my country.
“We, the medical personnel, are making a significant impact in history.”
Like Almazmi, several young Emiratis have taken up the responsibility of serving the community.

MoHAP also announced the death of three patients as a result of COVID-19 complications. The total number of deaths in the country has reached 375, it added.
The Ministry expressed its sincere condolences to the families of the deceased and wished current COVID-19 patients a speedy and full recovery.
