The National Doctor’s Day could not have come at a more appropriate time than the one we are experiencing right now. The medical fraternity is putting their lives on the line to save us and fight against the deadly pandemic of the novel coronavirus. While we have been appreciating and thanking them for their selfless service, 1st July gave another occasion to express our gratitude.
For cricketers, doctors are not only life-savers but they are also essential in lengthening their careers. No sportsperson is immune to injuries and only the right treatment can help them get back on the track. Many Indian cricketers expressed gratitude on Twitter.
On #DoctorsDay, let us all appreciate the 24/7 selfless efforts of our frontline doctors and pray for their safety & well being. 🙏🏼
They have always been our shield and refuge in any health crisis.
My salute to all the doctors across India & the world. pic.twitter.com/Fa3yUjutLN
