Airin Aldiani is a pulmonologist working in Jakarta, Indonesia. In her childhood, she dreamed of becoming a doctor who can save lives during disasters. But she never thought that she would be working on the frontline to fight against COVID-19. As the situation is getting scarier day by day, Aldiani and her colleagues are trying to be brave to pacify the scared patients. She said that the biggest achievement for doctors is acknowledgment from patients.

Only in this way will medical staff feel less pressure.
