Technologies That Make Boxing Day Celebration Possible in Hospitals This Year

Quick Summary: “After the months of isolation, economic anxiety, and pandemic restrictions, it’s completely understandable that in the festival season, people are desperate to meet their loved ones and family and want to celebrate the festival together.
