Miss England 2019 Returns To Work As A Doctor To Help With COVID-19 Pandemic

Dr Miss England is here to help.

In this critical time where the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc all around the world, the medical frontliners need all the help they can get.

In Malaysia, more than 3,000 retired nurses volunteered to help out during the pandemic.

In the United Kingdom, their Miss England 2019 beauty queen returned home from overseas charity work to continue her career as a doctor to help Coronavirus patients.

Going straight to work

CNN reported that Bhasha Mukherjee took a career break as a junior doctor after competing in the Miss World pageant in December 2019 and represented England at the international beauty pageant.

While she was in India for some charity work, her former colleagues at the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, eastern England, were updating her about the worrying COVID-19 situation back home.

Mukherjee, who specialises in respiratory medicine, made up her mind and contacted the hospital's management team to let them know that she wanted to return to work.

She won the beauty pageant back in 2019.
She told CNN that it felt wrong to be wearing her Miss England crown, even for humanitarian work, while thousands of people around the world were succumbing to the virus and her colleagues were risking their lives every day.

"When you are doing all this humanitarian work abroad, you're still expected to put the crown on, get ready... look pretty."

"I wanted to come back home. I wanted to come and go straight to work."

Giving up the crown to help those in need.
"I felt a sense of this is what I'd got this degree for and what better time to be part of this particular sector than now."

"It was incredible the way the whole world was celebrating all key workers, and I wanted to be one of those, and I knew I could help," she was quoted as saying.

After working with the British High Commission in Kolkata to find a flight back to the UK, Mukherjee returned to the country on Wednesday (8 April).

We wish you all the best, doctor! Thank you for your noble act.
