While all of us are staying at home to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, health professionals are staying away from their families, fighting the coronavirus on the frontline, risking their lives every day to save others.
To recognise their sacrifice, people around the world are expressing gratitude in various ways. As suggested by PM Modi, Indians applauded those on the frontline by clapping their hands from doorstep or balcony.
One such video of a superhero doctor working in the US, getting honoured in an extraordinary and heartwarming way is going viral online. Dr Uma Madhusudan, a Mysore-origin doctor, was recently honoured in front of her house with a parade.
The video was shared on Twitter by actor Adil Hussain.
“In recognition of her extraordinary service treating coronavirus patients in South Windsor Hospital in the US, Dr Uma Madhusudan, a Mysore-origin doctor honoured this way in front of her house. You can see her receiving salute!”

People living in the neighbourhood drove their cars and cheered for the doctor along with police cars and fire engines honking and blaring the sirens. The doctor can also be seen standing in her front yard and waving at the parade.
