“They should tell the truth”: a medical student faces Covid

Maïa is a third-year medical student. When the Covid-19 pandemic reaches France, she responds to a call sent out by her Head of Faculty and goes to help out at the hospital. She ends up working night shifts as a healthcare assistant—an enriching and challenging experience which will change her life. I would like to thank Pablo, Adèle and Ymai, the medical students who inspired me to write this story. 23 April 2020
