Jakub Jarý studied general medicine at the Faculty of Medicine in Plzeň, Czech Republic. Currently he works as a doctor in an Infectious Diseases ward in Ústí nad Labem.

Dr Jarý perceives his work to be a calling. He chose medicine because it is a field in which he can provide aid to others, be of benefit to them, and at the same time return the assistance provided to him by several foundations during his studies.

During this time of quarantine, his profession is among the most valuable to society. "It's not necessary for general members of the public to use the highest-quality respirators now. Those are reserved for us doctors because we are in close contact with patients. As far as the common activities of shopping and traveling on public transportation go, I believe any covering of the mouth and nose makes sense, it's not just some sort of redundant regulation," he explains when asked about the requirement to cover one's mouth and nose in public during the state of emergency.

"The fact that we doctors are limited in our physical movements because we are now wearing protective suits does not mean we will examine patients less well than if we did not have to wear the suit," Dr Jarý said. He discussed what it is like for physicians to work during quarantine with Richard Samko in an interview for ROMEA TV.
