Inspirations in the times of Coronavirus

Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are our superheroes’ today. Leading from the front lines, as the world struggles to contain the coronavirus outbreak, constantly risking their health to save others.

One such couple that saw their plans changed and their lives looking a whole lot different was Roberto Tonelli and his fiancé, Ivana Castaniere, Roberto and Ivana are both pulmonologists–lung specialists–who work at the same hospital. They were planning a wedding in their hometown of Moderna, Italy until a global pandemic hit. They’ve put their wedding plans on hold to save lives. Afraid of infection, Ivana admits that she takes “shallow breaths,” afraid that breathing deeply could increase her risks.

Working with your partner is one thing, but they often see family members coming into the hospital as patients as well. Indeed, the danger of contagion is that it is transmitted first to our loved ones.

The healthcare system, and its workers, have been under constant stress. More than 4000 doctors and nurses have been infected in the line of duty. More than, 37 Italian doctors have died due to the virus.

Roberto and his fiancee are exposed to the risk every day. And like everyone else, they know what it’s like to miss their family. They have a 2-year-old daughter who is currently staying with grandparents. They haven’t seen her in over a month.

It’s important to take a moment to appreciate and celebrate our healthcare workers, wherever we are. The best way to help them is by reducing the risk of propagating the disease, that is by observing the rules of self-isolation and social distancing.

Weddingsdegoa salutes such brave couple that put other’s before them. What could have been a month of celebration’s with wedding preparations has turned into a month of serving the community. They are true Inspirations in times of Coronavirus. We respect and pray the selfless love of this couple to the community. You are our True Heroes @Roberto & @Ivana .
