Today, India is struggling due to the second wave of coronavirus. Doctors and nurses are working 24 hours to save the lives of their patients.

Swati Bhimagaj, a nurse posted in Chhattisgarh, has set a new example of going above and beyond the call of duty to serve her patients. Swati learned sign language to speak to a patient admitted in a COVID-19 hospital in Chattisgarh.

The video of Swati communicating to the deaf patient is going viral on social media and people are praising her. Railway Ministry has also praised her through Twitter.


During the treatment of deaf patients, Swati realized that she cannot communicate with them. In such a situation, she decided to work hard for hours and learned sign language. This made the communication with those patients easy and now she was able to understand their problems which helped her to get better treatment for them.
