The heroes of our time

Chess composers cover many different professions, but this year one profession deserves more appreciation and gratitude than all others.
I don't know how many medical workers among composers have been actively involved in daily struggle with Covid-19, but now I know there are at least two great composers among them.
Our GM Mario Parrinello has been in the first lines of Italian medical defense, as a general practitioner doctor, for more than four months. It was at the beginning of April when he wrote he had never witnessed such a scary situation in his 30 years career of a doctor. June is ending, but the troubles of medical workers in Italy still last ...
Tomorrow is the Day of medical workers in Ukraine, 21.06. In order to celebrate it, Ukrainian TV made an interview with the chief of the Chernobyl medical centre. Watching it, we got to know the other kind of problems this man solve: Sergy Ivanovich Tkachenko, our FM Composer and Ukrainian master of sport in OTB chess.
Thanks to Yuri Gordian and Anatoly Vasilenko who published this interview on the ChessblogYG:

Two of our composers in India: Manikumar in Chennai and Phanibhushan in Bangalore are also doctors(neonatologists). They are involved in newborn and pediatric care, including Covid positive cases. In these difficult times, chess problems and the current WCCT is helping to keep their spirits up! They have already composed good entries. We had a lively online meeting yesterday.

Выражаю благодарность Марьяну Ковачевичу за публикацию этого поста и всем, кто на него откликнулся в комментариях.
Благодарю всех медицинских работников, и особенно медиков-композиторов за их нелегкий труд. Ведь в то время, когда многие из нас использовали карантин для пополнения своего творческого багажа, они вынуждены были постоянно, рискуя своим здоровьем, быть на переднем крае борьбы с COVID-19.
В дополнение поста Марьяна отмечу, что мой друг, весьма скромный и непубличный человек, Сергей Иванович Ткаченко, приехал на работу в Чернобыльскую зону еще в конце 80-х годов прошлого века и внес также большой вклад и в устранение другой серьезной угрозы для человечества – последствий Чернобыльской катастрофы.
Я знаю, что в Украине среди шахматных композиторов есть еще несколько врачей. В частности, это чемпион мира по двухходовкам, международный гроссмейстер, Василий Дячук и этюдист, мастер FIDE , Владислав Тарасюк.
Пользуясь случаем, поздравляю их с недавним профессиональным праздником.
Владислав Тарасюк в журнале “Проблеміст України” 2 (64) 2020 в рубрике “Шахова планета” (редактор Владимир Самило) опубликовал изобразительный этюд, посвященный медицинским работникам и всем людям в борьбе с пандемией COVID-19.
Думаю, что участникам Форума будет интересно познакомиться с этим материалом.
