Nurse sings to patients: As much desolation as Indian Twitter sees these days, with emergency COVID-19 headlines and despairing photos crowding timelines, there is some respite to be found in visuals floating in from other countries. One such video from Ottawa, Canada is doing the rounds where a frontline nurse is seen serenading patients in intensive care unit (ICU), so they know they are “not alone.”

The video of Amy-Lynn at Ottawa Hospital, singing You Are Not Alone in her scrubs, mask and other protective gear, has amassed over 75000 views on Twitter.

Responding to all the praise pouring in for her, Amy-Lynn commented, “Just humbled to have the chance to represent my colleagues and fellow nurses in this way! Thanks for the support!”

In Canada, Nurse Sings To Patients And Lifts Spirits Worldwide

Comments beneath the video show that Amy-Lynn’s song has managed to offer a moment of comfort to not just Canadians, but people across continents.

“This brought tears to my eyes. To think that she is singing to our fellow citizens of Ottawa. Someones mother or father, grandfather or grandmother,” one user wrote.

“Thank you for responding so beautifully, selflessly, tenderly and wholeheartedly to your call to care for others in their most vulnerable moments,” another wrote.

One of Amy-Lynn’s colleagues also weighed in, writing, “Such a beautiful act of human kindness. I work with Amy in Endoscopy, she’s a tremendous nurse, a beautiful person and a talented musician.

Healthcare workers everywhere have risen to the occasion with innovation to give solace to COVID-19 affected patients. In Brazil, nurses devised the ‘hand of God‘ to offer the warmth of human touch to isolated patients. In India too, several Good Samaritans are doing their bit to help during crisis, such as this auto-driver who transformed his vehicle into an ambulance or this woman who is assisting families in burying their dead.
