Since its the time of social distancing, else people would stop and start taking selfies on streets with these unsung heroes. Rather they get cherishing messages on social media. The new celebrity cluster emerging across the world is not some actors or singers or politicians.

During situations when a crisis occurs, heroes come to the front shore because humanity basic needs are threatened. Heroes wearing no caps helps to fulfill, at least in some part the required basic human needs.

But as said not all heroes wear caps, here are the people who are helping the country to go through COVID 19 Pandemic.
