ABOUT THE ART
This work marks a new point in time. We are now in the 4th wave and the pressure on the healthcare workers is relentless. And with the "Omicron" variant getting a hold of countries around the world it might get even worse. With this work I want to raise more awareness of the fact that for most healthcare workers not much has changed since the start of the pandemic.
