Sprinter Milkha Singh’s daughter and ace golfer Jeev Milkha Singh’s elder sister has made her family proud. She has been battling the COVID-19 pandemic by working as a doctor in New York. Mona Milkha Singh is a doctor at the Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York and she is attending to emergency patients of coronavirus, as per a report in PTI.
Jeev, a four-time European Tour champion, told PTI, “She is basically an ER (Emergency Room) doctor in Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York City. So, when someone comes with the coronavirus symptoms, she has to treat them. She checks the patients, stabilises them, performs intubation (insertion of artificial ventilation tube into a patient) before they are sent to special wards to quarantine the COVID-19 patients.”
Mona passed out of Patiala Medical College and she has been working in the US for more than 20 years.
“I am so proud of her. She says it is like running a marathon every day. She has been working five days a week, sometimes day shifts, sometimes night shifts, 12-hour shifts and it is tough but she has to do the job as best as she can. We keep asking how she is feeling and if there are any symptoms. I tell her to stay positive and boost her immune system,” said Jeev.
Meanwhile, 14,604 deaths have been caused in New York City as per Johns Hopkins University.
