New Delhi, Jun 01, 2020: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Indian doctors and healthcare workers are “invincible” and in the fight against the invisible coronavirus, our medical workers are sure to win.
Prime Minister Modi inaugurated 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”, IndiaToday reported.
“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,” said PM Modi on a day when the coronavirus cases in India rose to 1.9 lakh with over 8,300 new Covid infections.
“At the root of India’s brave fight against COVID-19 is the hardwork of the medical community and our coronavirus warriors. In fact, doctors and medical workers are like soldiers, but without the soldiers’ uniform,” said PM Modi.
He went on to add, “At such a time, the world is looking up to our doctors, nurses, medical staff and scientific community with hope and gratitude.”
Speaking on the violence and prejudice shown against doctors during the coronavirus 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.”
