Miss England 2019 Trades In Her Crown for a Mask To Help With Pandemic

Miss England 2019

Bhasha Mukherjee was crowned Miss England 2019, but the beauty queen has put her humanitarian work overseas on hold and returned to her job as a junior doctor in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

24-year old Bhasha holds two medical degrees from the University of Nottingham. During this time of the novel coronavirus, Bhasha started to hear from her former colleagues about how dire the situation with the virus was in the hospitals.

"I felt a sense of this is what I'd got this degree for and what better time to be part of this particular sector than now," she said.

It was the beginning of March when Bhasha was working in India as an ambassador for a charity there. "When you are doing all this humanitarian work abroad, you're still expected to put the crown on, get ready...look pretty," she said. "I felt unfair getting dressed up in a place of safety while my colleagues were laying their lives on the frontline. I wanted to come back home and go straight to work."

Once she returned to England, Bhasha self-isolated for fourteen days before returning to work at the Pilgrim Hospital. She even appeared in an ad by the National Health Service. The ad encourages people to stay home to prevent the spread of coronavirus. "Health care staff are risking their lives for us, so let's risk our mere leisure for a little while to say thank you to them," posted Bhasha on her Instagram.
