Miss England 2019, Bhasha Mukherjee, has resumed her career as a doctor amid the coronavirus crisis. Ms Mukherjee, who was in India for a humanitarian trip, returned to the UK to continue her work as a doctor as coronavirus cases surged across the globe.
Born in Kolkata, Bhasha Mukherjee was crowned Miss England in August last year. She had initially decided to take a break from her medical career to focus on charity work after winning the crown – until the coronavirus pandemic changed her decision.
“It wasn’t a tough decision,” the 24-year-old told Fox News on Tuesday. “I’ve been to Africa, Turkey, and India was the first of the Asian countries I was going to travel to. After India, I had several other countries that had to be cut short because of obviously the coronavirus. I knew the best place for me would be back at the hospital.”
