Who are the Coronavirus helpers?

There are 17 million people who work in healthcare in the U.S. roughly half are considered frontline workers. During this pandemic, these selfless individuals, along with other essential workers, are putting themselves on the line to save other people‚s lives and improve the overall health of community members.

Some of these groups of people include but are not limited to health care professionals, researchers, volunteers, teachers, workers of restaurants and supermarkets, and sanitation workers.

Health care professionals (doctors, nurses, PAs) are giving immediate care to those who are ill, providing life support, and putting themselves at risk for contracting COVID-19. They are tirelessly working on the front lines of this pandemic.

  • Researchers are working tirelessly to come up with a vaccine and possible therapies to treat patients with COVID-19
  • Volunteers are giving blood, donating supplies, making masks, and doing online work to support health care workers during this pandemic
  • Grocery store workers are also putting themselves at risk by going to work to make sure that their communities have food. They have to sanitize grocery stores to make sure that they are lowering the chance of infection among community members
  • Teachers have quickly transformed their classrooms to be online, ensuring that they are still providing effective teaching and support for their students
