COVID-19 has shut down most people’s normal lives. But grocery stores are still open, mail is still delivered, and restaurants are offering meals via delivery. None of this would be possible without the people who are still going to work every day, exposing themselves to the virus so that others can stay home. Most importantly, healthcare workers are doing all they can—putting their own lives at risk—to treat and save those who have contracted the disease. In this book, readers will get inspired by the real-life heroes of one of the largest health crises in human history.
