I think it's special to see how well it's becoming visible these days what vital professions are. The care and funeral industry in particular are getting the attention they deserve. Hopefully more and more people will realise that we cannot do without these professionals and that they are our real heroes.

What about cab transportation? I drive frail elderly people and patients. I suppose that's also a crucial profession.

Strange that laboratories are not listed. I work in a hospital of which 25% (1/4) of my colleagues have been infected (only the lab, so the rest of the hospital is not included). We also receive and work with samples from COVID-19 patients. From what perspective is this not a crucial or vital profession? Ridiculous people who compile this list!

Yes zat is indeed very strange, but I think that under the group of care workers you are just eligible, right?

Strange that installation companies are not mentioned as a vital profession. I have been working in three hospitals for weeks with colleagues to put emergency facilities into operation in ICU departments and to convert recovery rooms into ICU beds. Outside the facilities in an emergency hospital where beds and a CT SCAN are located (tent) put into operation. This was all done by colleagues.
