After getting approval from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, Shikha served at the Thackeray Trauma Hospital, located in Jogeshwari East. Here she was posted in the isolation ward.

Viral Bhayani’s post also carried a message from Shikha in which she said that after completing the nursing course, they are required to take an oath to serve the society. She felt that this is the right time to fulfill her oath. She further requested retired doctors and nurses to come forward and render their service during these critical times.

We all know that doctors, nurses and other medical staff who are treating the affected patients are themselves at great risk of catching this virus. Despite of this, Shikha chose to perform her duty as a nurse. This act has garnered lot of praise and appreciation from masses.

Thank You
