Doctor with passion for photography captures hospital’s coronavirus battle


A doctor on the coronavirus front line has refocused his passion for photography to document his hospital’s battle with the virus. Tuck Goh, who always carries a small camera in his pocket, has been capturing candid shots of his colleagues in the emergency department of the Ulster Hospital near Belfast as they respond to the Covid-19 crisis. Dr Goh, a 59-year-old associate specialist who has worked in the hospital’s ED for 23 years, has travelled extensively pursuing his lifetime love of street photography. At the outset of the pandemic, as the hospital undertook a major reconfiguration in preparation for the virus’s surge, he decided to keep a visual record of the events for generations to come.
