She gave her life. We forgot her!With the outbreak of the Nipah virus infections in Kozhikode, the brave doctors and nurses along with the administration took measures to stop the spread of the disease.
In their tireless efforts to treat infected patients, one nurse got infected and sadly gave her life in the line of duty. She was Nurse Lini Puthussery who treated the first Nipah virus patient and two others at Perambara Hospital.
She could not see some of her family members and was cremated quickly for the fear of the spread of infection.
People are quick to point out mistakes of doctors and nurses but fail to recognize the selfless sacrifice of people like her. Hat's off to Mrs. Lini.P
