The year 2020 has been far from what many expected it to be due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which had ushered in a range of restrictions and lockdowns. And now, a picture of a newborn baby “trying to remove” a doctor’s surgical mask has brought in some optimism amongst netizens.
The picture was shared on facebook by Dubai-based doctor Samer Cheaib along with a caption that read, “We all want a sign that we are going to take off the mask soon.”
In the picture, which has now gone viral on social media, the doctor can be seen holding a newborn baby in his hand, who, it seems, is attempting to remove the mask off his face.
One user said, “What a beautiful and meaningful picture. And the baby already knows what is right…we need to breathe!” Another wrote, “It’s the best emotions that I have ever seen!”
Someone commented, “This is everyone’s hope.” Yet another added, “The most beautiful thing i have seen! Hopefully we will get rid of the masks soon! Thank u for sharing!”
