Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with doctors, paramedical staff and other frontline & health workers of Varanasi through video conferencing. At that time, Prime Minister Modi became emotional while talking to them.
Prime Minister Modi broke down and said, this virus has took away many of us. I pay tribute to all of them. Comforts their families. In this second wave of corona we have to fight together on many fronts. At this time the positivity rate is also many times higher. Patients have to stay in the hospital for longer days. This puts a strain on your health system. Even in this extraordinary situation, due to the untiring efforts of our doctors and health workers, we are able to handle this stress.
You also served diligently. The speed at which Varanasi multiplied the number of oxygen and ICU beds in such a short time. Pandit Rajan activated Mishra Covid Hospital, which is a great example.
Prime Minister Modi has now come up with a new mantra, ‘Jaha Bimar Wahi Upchar’ (where there is sickness, there is cure) by creating micro-containment zones in the same way that medicines are being distributed in your city and village homes. This is a good thing. This campaign needs to be expanded as much as possible.
We have handled this pandemic well. However, now is not the time for happiness. Because now we have to fight a bigger battle. We also want to pay special attention to the rural areas of Varanasi and Purvanchal, said Prime Minister Modi.
