Doctors and nurses across the world have been working on the front lines of this pandemic this year. We are thankful to each and every one of them. Most doctors in hospitals you will find wearing white coats, but why white?
Way back in the 19th century they were originally wore black coats to hide any stains and to look more formal/professional. But later in the century the medical world decided they wanted the aesthetics of everything in the hospital to look as clean as possible. White coats signified “cleanliness” much more than black and reflected the overall movement against germs.
