As of September 2020, India has claimed the unwanted top spot for the highest number of daily jumps in the COVID-19 cases, reporting more than 90000 cases per day. Although India's coronavirus-related death rate is lower than other countries, the country has also taken a spot among the nations, where the front-line healthcare workers account for a significant portion of all the COVID-19 positivity diagnoses. Especially, the infection rate is alarmingly high among the patient-facing essential workers like ward boys, who are at the bottom of the hospital hierarchy. Despite having no professional medical training, they take care of everything from collecting samples, transporting infectious materials and serving food for the patients.
