Bengaluru: Mamtaz Begum sets an example which many others would rather avoid. The nurse at Manipal Hospital continues to care for covid patients even after surviving the worst.

She got infected while taking care of the patients, and "remained unfazed and fought the corona battle valiantly, and came out of the ordeal as a great survivor," Manipal Hospital Chief Operating Officer Deepak Venugopalan told IANS.

Anybody in her place would have second thoughts before plunging back. Because, the 49-year-old had previously undergone a kidney transplant in 2016, recalled nephrologist S Vishwanath. Back then, she was diagnosed with damaged renal system.

Mamtaz, a Hindu by birth, was a student of Manipal Nursing College and had fallen in love with a Muslim young man when she began working at the hospital over two decades ago.

Her progressive parents stood by her choice and the couple got married in 1996.

"Mamtaz is a living proof of a responsible and sensible citizen. Her husband and their two sons stood by her when she was recuperating at the hospital's unit in Tamil Nadu's Salem after the renal transplant," noted Vishwanath.

Honouring her selfless services, the hospital had Mamtaz unfurl the Tricolour on the 74th Independence Day on August 15 on the premises along with other Corona Warriors.

"Colleagues like Mamtaz are an inspiration for us all. They put duty and patients before self. She got her freed from COVID-19 last month ahead of the Independence Day and soon rejoined duty to serve her patients," added Venugopalan.
