Doctors in Texas are afraid of virus infection

A doctor in Texas in the United States works in the emergency room of a hospital, taking care of patients diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia every day, and he himself has become a high-risk group. He was worried that the virus would be transmitted to his family when he returned home, and he came up with a new method of self-isolation: climbing to the tree house that the garden was originally built for children to play in, it was used as a temporary residence.

39-year-old doctor Barnes works in the emergency department of a hospital in Corpus Christi, southern Texas. Over the past few months, he and other colleagues have been fighting on the front line, facing danger every day. Worried about being infected with the virus and possibly infecting family members, some colleagues dare not go home or use other methods to protect their families.

Barnes said in an interview with the local media that he lived in the tree house in his backyard for 3 weeks, isolated himself and avoided direct contact with his family. When he needed to get something, he called out for help, or walked down the tree house and called for the child through the backyard door.

He has two sons, one 6 years old and one 9 years old. Their beloved tree house was occupied by their father and they were not allowed to play during this period, but they understood it very well.

Barnes said: “They miss the tree house very much. They also told me: miss me once a day.”
