Every day, Americans rely on the numbers of the global coronavirus pandemic to understand the fundamentals: growth, threat, duration and impact. We look to numbers of those infected, those recovered and passed, hospital capacity, number of ventilators and masks needed or delivered that day, the inventory numbers at our nearby grocery stores, the clocks to tell us when to check news for updates, the charts to show us if we are flattening the curve, and counting the days of sheltering-in-place. Numbers are dictating our lives; dominating our conversations; helping us process and understand the progression of the pandemic.

For more than 20 years, Abdi* has cared for Somalia’s sick as a nurse with International Medical Corps in Somalia. He started his work with International Medical Corps in 1996. Over the years he has responded to disease outbreaks in three different regions of Somalia and saved countless lives. Today, he sees about 50 patients a day at a clinic that International Medical Corps runs in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

“Some come to the health facility in severe condition,” Abdi said. “I am always ready to go an extra mile and provide the care they need. I feel good when I see them leave the facility better than they came.”
