News from the Frontline

The true heroes of this global pandemic are the healthcare workers who are risking their lives around the world, often without adequate Personal Protective Equipment. In the United States a medical podcast called the Nocturnists has been collating the stories of healthcare workers who have been directly involved in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

In March the Nocturnists asked for interested healthcare workers to keep an audio diary about their experiences with this pandemic. The Nocturnists: Stories From a Pandemic is an interactive map which features these audio diaries recorded by healthcare workers om the front line of the fight against Covid-19. These audio diaries recount the personal experiences of those who have been working in hospitals across the United States and who know the effect that coronavirus is having on people and families.

You can also listen to edited highlights from the audio diaries recorded by healthcare workers on the Nocturnists podcast series Stories From a Pandemic.
