A junior doctor, Miss England 2019, Bhasha Mukherjee, is trading in her crown to fight Covid-19 being on the frontlines as an NHS doctor. The 24-year old had put her medical career on hold so that she could travel the world for humanitarian efforts. Now, she thinks wearing the crown does not feel right when her colleagues were risking their lives treating coronavirus patients back home in England.
According to Mukherjee, there is no better time for her to be Miss England and helping England at a time of need. Mukherjee is self-isolating for one to two weeks until she can return to work as a doctor.
