In the video, nurse Amy-Lynn Howson standing outside a patient's room in the ICU and singing the song 'You Are Not Alone'. 

In an attempt to lift patients’ spirits, a nurse on the frontlines of the fight against Covid-19 was seen in a video singing a song. In a video from the Ottawa Hospital in Canada, we can see nurse Amy-Lynn Howson standing outside a patient’s room in the ICU and singing the song ‘You Are Not Alone’. 

Nurse Howson can be seen in scrubs and a face mask with a guitar in her hand, singing, in the video which is being widely shared on social media.

“It’s the most fulfilling thing I could ever do,” she told CityNews Ottawa. “I know they’re being allowed to feel something that they need to feel – that they’ve not been letting themselves process whatever it is they’re going through. And I know that I’m doing my job if they’re able to have a private moment to feel something and process emotionally what they’re going through.”

“I wrote it about three or four years ago when a friend was struggling with some mental health issues and it reminded me of some of my own struggles,” Ms Howson told CTV News.

“I’ve been helping out in the ICU I noticed how heavy things have been and I saw how lonely the patients were. I thought if I don’t do this now, when is there a better time to start bringing comfort to the patients just the way I can,” she added.

Since being shared, the video of Howson singing for the ICU patients has garnered more than 75,000 views and 3,500 ‘likes’.

“The voice of an angel! Beautiful indeed. Thank you to Amy-Lynn and all the nurses and doctors working tirelessly!” wrote one person in the comments section.

“What a thoughtful, generous and compassionate thing to do!” wrote another.

The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc around the world, and India is in a state of despair, today more than ever. Hospitals and crematoriums are witnessing unending queues every day. People are begging for hospital beds and oxygen, and dying in the absence of both.

This is the time to be there for one another, be kind and compassionate. Nurse Howson restores our faith in humanity.
