“I know that many Canadians are in worst circumstances,” she wrote.
Earlier this month, Khera wrote that she registered to help ease nurse shortages amid the coronavirus outbreak. She said she hoped that would help reduce wait times.
“As a RN there couldn’t be a more important time to give back to my community,” she said.
