This year has been all about Covid, and we’re all looking for that ray of hope! Well, it seems even new born babies have a sense of understanding on what’s happening currently around the world. A recent picture of a newborn pulling off a Dubai doctor’s mask has got the internet buzzing. The picture was shared on Facebook by Dubai-based doctor Samer Cheaib along with a caption that read, “We all want a sign that we are going to take off the mask soon.”

The Video Prompted Reactions, Calling It A Positive Sign

Netizens called the act a sign of positivity, re-insitlling hope on what lies ahead of us. It was a regular day at work for Lebanese doctor Dr Samer Cheaib. He conducted a c-section and the mother gave birth to twin babies- one boy and one girl. He first delivered the baby girl and then the boy, who promptly tugged at his facemask, trying to remove it. The doctors laughed at the good omen, and considered it a sign to a mask-free future.

Overwhelmed by the touching act, Samer immediately shared a picture on social media. In the picture, the doctor is seen holding the baby, who is attempting to remove the mask of his face.
