The first of May is dedicated to laborers. around the world. Presently, there are no better workers than the front line health care workers. Therefore, the whole world is paying tribute to them for their services.
Nevertheless, besides the services of health care workers, the government is not assisting them in fighting the pandemic. In addition, social media platforms are replete with stories and tweets, regarding health care workers.
Reportedly, hundreds of doctors have been affected by the deadly COVID-19; all because of a lack of personal Protective Equipment PPE. Although doctors protested against the dearth of PPE, the government did not pay any heed rather arrested them.
Following the current situation of health care workers, people, and doctors of Twitter paid tribute to front line warriors and protested against the administration.

If health workers fall, society will fall
No one amongst us is more important than our health workers right now. If they start falling, our society will be defenceless against coronavirus. 500 health workers have already been infected. Their demand for adequate PPE must be our 1st priority. #WeStandWithHealthWorkers

Above all, people in Pakistan are paying rich tribute to the front line warriors. However, journalists, doctors, civil society, and almost every educated person is urging the government to provide facilities to the health care workers.
Furthermore, the ration of positive cases among health care workers is soaring. Currently, there is no approved drug or vaccine to treat the pandemic. Hence, the government must take bold steps to at least protect the health care workers.
