“A sign of hope.” That’s how the Mayo Clinic in Arizona interpreted a rainbow that appeared over health professionals who were screening patients for COVID-19. A photo of the natural phenomenon went viral after the Mayo Clinic posted it on their Facebook page garnering more 2,700 likes and 300 shares as of Tuesday. It showed a man decked out in protective gear with a clear mask over his head standing in an empty parking lot glistening after a day of rain. Right above him is a bright rainbow contrasted by grey skies. According to the clinic’s post, the man standing in the photo is Alex Kruysman, a member of Mayo’s Nursing Resource Pool in Arizona. He was taking a break after screening vulnerable patients for COVID-19 when the rainbow appeared.
