Facing a severe shortage of medical staff, Rouhani continued to treat patients even after she herself was infected by COVID-19. After her death, many Iranians used Instagram, Twitter, and other social media platforms to share a photo of the doctor hard at work while hooked to an IV drip, praising her persistence and bravery in the face of Iran’s massive outbreak. Rouhani’s story and the photo above went viral with the hashtag #ripshirinrouhani.
