Miss England Bengali girl Bhasha Mukherjee dons her doctor cap amid Corona menace

Bengali lass Bhasha Mukherjee, the beauty queen who made headlines last year as Miss England  2019 has returned to the United Kingdom from overseas charity work to fight the coronavirus pandemic as a doctor. After all, she is a qualified junior doctor and responded to the call of the times. 

Invited to be an ambassador for several charities, Mukherjee had planned to hang up her stethoscope and focus on humanitarian work until August this year. In a recent interview to CN she said: “I was invited to Africa, to Turkey, then to India, Pakistan and several other Asian countries to be an ambassador for various charity work.” But as the coronavirus situation worsened back in UK, Mukherjee was getting messages from former colleagues at her old hospital, the Pilgrim Hospital in Eastern England, telling her how hard the situation was for them. Mukherjee contacted the hospital's management team to let them know that she wanted to return to work. 

“I wanted to come back home. I wanted to come and go straight to work.” Mukherjee, who moved to the English city of Derby from Kolkata at the age of 9, said: “I felt a sense of this is what I’d got my medical degree for and what better time to be part of this particular sector than now.” Mukherjee is self-isolating for one to two weeks until she can return to work as a doctor at the Pilgrim Hospital. She specializes in respiratory medicine but said doctors are currently being rotated to wherever they are needed.
