I definitely agree with Kayley’s viewpoint in 5B. Though the disease was destructive in the sense that it destroyed families and created harsh stigmas towards the homosexual community, it was lightening to see the disease bring out the best in providers. Providers began to care for their patients when their families had abandoned them. This to me, shows the powerful role of the provider who not only cares for the patient but has the capacity to take the transformative role of the parents, friends, siblings, etc. I also saw many similarities that Kayley has with the COVID-19 virus and presidential responses towards it. I have also seen similarities in how providers have also become family to those with COVID-19 given that family members are not allowed to visit given the contagious nature of the disease.
