Ms Outhet said: “By now, we all know someone fighting this or have lost someone fighting Covid-19 – our health-care workers across the country are drowning in it daily. A small gesture such as this one goes a long way in keeping their spirits up. They can’t get away from it, they are our superheroes. We thank them so much for their dedication to their work. We ask all of our community members to please be safe at all times.”
