It is true, on my marriage day I was in the corona ward and some of my friends teased me saying I was dressed in my best attire (PPE). But I always enjoy serving my patients. I don’t want to talk much about it as I did my duty only."
The young surgeon was all set to tie the knot with her Dubai based fiance on March 29. Instead, she spent that day curing patients at the isolation ward of the Pariyaram medical college hospital in Kannur.
Because she believed that her wedding could wait, but her patients need her. Dr. Shifa's father, Mukkam Mohammed immediately agreed to the delay.

Healthcare workers around the world are doing all they can and we are so grateful for their sacrifices in this hour of need.
