The New York Post has selected Nermeen Botros, an Egyptian-American doctor working as the chief medical resident at Brookdale University Hospital’s Medical Center as its “Hero of the Day” for tirelessly working 80 hours a week since the coronavirus crisis began. Botros’s work doesn’t stop even when she gets home, the article says, as she’s on call 24/7 to support the younger residents she oversees. She told the New York Post that her calls aren’t just for medical information. When the first COVID-19 cases rolled into her hospital several weeks ago, Botros said the situation was difficult to deal with. After many residents felt too uncertain to take the COVID-19 tests, Botros stepped in to administrate the tests herself.
