Medical couple gets babysitting help

With the coronavirus lockdown stranding a medical couple in their hospital, a kindergarten offered to babysit their little son.

Birendra Kumar Sah, from Nepal, and his Shanghainese wife, both doctors at Ruijin Hospital, were busy at work when the hospital was locked down on Thursday afternoon.

“We were not afraid for ourselves because we are confident about the management. But it really bothered us who would take care of our son,” Sah said.

Their parents were not available to look after the 6-year-old.

The Sinan Road Kindergarten came to the rescue. Three teachers were chosen to care for him, including one taking him home at night. “My son loves kindergarten,” Sah said. “We were reassured he was cared for by familiar teachers. From my own experience, in China, support comes from all sides when one is in trouble. We serve patients, and society serves us, too.”
