Physicians and other healthcare workers have answered the internal call to action to halt the spread and are doing what they have been called upon and trained to do – taking care of patients. These brave frontline men and women, as Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed stated in one of his latest address,are battling this invisible modern era enemy. Physicians across the globe have created countless social media groups to discuss what they can and cannot do as well as share their experience and the anticipated challenges about. This experience has revealed the enormous potential of a newly budding frontier in medical practice i.e. telemedicine in patient care. Mainstream as well as social media are significantly facilitating systems change in medical information exchange and traditional patient care landscape. At the beginning of the physicians as scientists, but not as fortune tellers, accurately anticipated the current situation. Do not get me wrong, there was a lot of self-questioning amongst them and they were not being alarmists.
