Jakub Jarý is a Romani doctor who is working daily in the Infectious Diseases Ward at a local hospital in the Czech Republic examining the dozens of people suspected of COVID-19 infection in his area. The DROM, Romani Center organization has posted a video to its Facebook profile in which Dr. Jarý thanks everybody in the Romani community who is respecting the state's instructions to prevent dissemination of the disease.

"As a Romani doctor, I would like to reach out to our community in particular," Jarý says in the video."I am asking you all to comply with the prescribed anti-epidemic measures and regulations."

"One of the most-appreciated characteristics of the Romani community is how much we love our family and closest friends," the doctor says. "For that reason, I'd like to ask you all: If we have to go outdoors, then let's wear our face masks, and let's not gather in clusters of multiple people, not on the street and not at home."

"Right now is a time when we all can demonstrate to everybody else that we know how to pull together and that we are valid members of this society who must be counted on," the doctor says. "I would very much like to thank everybody who is respecting the regulations and following them and setting a good example for those around them."

"I'm wishing you all a good rest of the day and a lot of strength and tenacity during this difficult time," Dr Jarý closes. DROM also posted that "It is an honor for us that we were able to support Jakub during his studies through the VERDA Foundation."
