Faces from the Front Line of the Fight Against Coronavirus – Photo Gallery!

Fanni Kaszás 2020.05.21.

Photographer of the Hungarian News Agency (MTI), Zoltán Balogh took pictures of those who face the ‘invisible enemy’ every day.  Doctors, nurses, and other members of hospital staff involved in the treatment of coronavirus patients in Budapest showed their faces to the camera after a long day of fighting the respiratory disease.

Although the restrictions are lifted in the whole country and our lives are slowly returning to normal, people are still becoming infected with the coronavirus. Currently, the number of active infections is 1,659, a third of which, a total of 510 people, require hospital treatment, while 27 patients are on a ventilator. These people are treated 24/7 by hundreds of doctors, nurses, and other hospital workers who are fighting against the virus on the front lines, with increased exposure to the disease. They often move out from their flats and houses in order to avoid infecting their families and work all day in protective gear, which often leaves marks on their faces. MTI published a number of pictures from the epidemic hospitals around the country, showing the faces of the front line.
