Violin-Playing Nurse from Chile Lifts Hearts of COVID-19 Patients

Damaris Silva, a nurse from Santiago, Chile, serenades her COVID-19 patients with her violin at the end of her shift to lift up their hearts.

As Reuters reports, Damaris makes it a point to return to the ward after her shift at 6 PM to play a mix of popular Latin songs with her violin to her patients.

She does this twice a week without fail, spending hours serenading the corridors of the Hospital El Pino.

Going the extra mile to care for her patients

Many of the patients admitted to the Hospital El Pino have spent weeks in critical care, and the staff has made great efforts to lift up their hearts. 

The 26-year-old nurse's violin serenade is one that certainly stands out.

“As soon as I walk in, the patients brighten, they seem happier; they smile and applaud,” Damaris said in an interview with Reuters.

As she goes the extra mile to care for her patients, her mini-concerts have also cheered up her exhausted colleagues.

Damaris adds that she wants to “give a little bit of love, of faith, of hope with my violin. Every time I do it, I do it from my heart.”

At the time of this writing, Chile has a total of 303,083 active COVID-19 cases, with a 98% recovery rate.
