MUMBAI| Prime minister Narendra Modi said Indian doctors and health care workers are “invincible” and in the fight against the invisible coronavirus, our medical workers are sure to win.
While inaugurating the silver jubilee celebrations of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in Karnataka via video conference on Monday. PM Modi said, “Had it not been for the global pandemic, I would have loved to be with you all in Bengaluru to mark this special day.”
PM Modi said, “The virus may be an invisible enemy but our warriors, medical workers are invincible. In the battle of Invisible vs Invincible, our medical workers are sure to win.” The cases in the nation rose to 1.9 lakh with over 8,300 new COVID-19 cases.
PM Modi also said, “At the root of India’s brave fight against COVID-19 is the hard work of the medical community and our coronavirus warriors. In fact, doctors and medical workers are like soldiers, but without the soldiers’ uniform.”
He further added, “At such a time, the world is looking up to our doctors, nurses, medical staff and scientific community with hope and gratitude.”
The attacks on the doctors and health workers during the pandemic, PM Modi said, “Due to mob mentality, those workers (safai workers, doctors and nurses) on the frontline are subject to violence. I want to state it clearly, violence, abuse and rude behaviour against front-line workers is not acceptable.”
