Choi explains how it was crucial “khổng lồ bring comfort lớn those patients in a way that would allow them lớn overcome their illness.” When a COVID-19 patient was discharged, “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles would play through the halls. “Everytime that tuy vậy was played it was a reminder khổng lồ all of us that another patient had been saved from the coronavi khuẩn.”
