Coronavirus | “For this building you are the most important person”: the message to a doctor from his neighbors


In a building Palermo a completely opposite history is lived to the one that some doctors are passing. There lives a doctor that, far from the discrimination suffered by his colleagues, he received the support of all the neighbors.

On March 20, when the mandatory quarantine started, Nicholas, who is a medical specialist in Otorhinolaryngology, hung a poster in the elevator offering his service to the neighbors and giving them recommendations on how to take care of themselves.

“Neighbors, how are you doing? My name is Nicolás. I live in the 5B of the building. I leave you this poster because I am a doctor and if they eventually need help, don’t hesitate to knock on the door “said the notice. He also recommended them to stay at home. “Remember that hand washing and hygiene is essential, especially when they touch doorknobs or go outside. Between all we must take care of ourselves “, he assured.

In dialogue with TN and The People, Nicolás said that it was born from his heart to make this poster and that he had the support of his wife. “If you can give a hand, welcome. We doctors we are also afraid of catchingWe have family and we don’t want them to get sick, that’s why I find it hard to understand the people who discriminate against us, “he explained.

The good gesture of Nicolás soon received a response. Rubén Bustos, who lives on the sixth floor, hung another thank you sign in the elevator of the building located in Salguero and Soler.

“Dr./a, in this building you are the most important person”, and quickly had the support of other neighbors who left their apartment and apartment number at the bottom of the drawing.

“I found them beastly the cases of discrimination suffered by doctors in some buildings. It is true that they are the most important people right now and that they take risks to take care of us. So I made this drawing by hand like when I was a boy, and luckily many neighbors joined in thanking Nicolás, “said Rubén.

When the doctor came out this Wednesday morning to do the shopping, he found the sign and now he is the one who thanks the neighbors.
