New Delhi: Dr Prathap C Reddy’s love and respect for his own hospital’s healthcare workers is already part of Apollo fable as evidenced by his gesture of standing up to greet whosoever, be him a minister or a housekeeper, enters his chamber. But this time his heart has gone out for the whole fraternity of healthcare workers of the country who are attending to COVID patients 24/7 endangering their and their families’ lives.
He has also thanked P M Modi for commending acknowledging the selfless contribution of healthcare fraternity in fight against COVID 19.
The Chairman and Patriarch of Apollo Hospitals Group has today made an emotional appeal to the healthcare fraternity to come forward and be the answer to every prayer and fulfill their need to serve and save people. He urged all his fellow healthcare workers, the frontline warriors to be the pillars of strength in this difficult time. He saluted their spirit and acknowledged the contribution of each and every healthcare worker; from doctors to the delivery personnel on the field and also thanked their family members for their support. He lauded the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s bold decision of the lockdown and beseeched each of us to lock our fears away and make it a success.
We support the bold lockdown decision taken by our Honorable Prime Minister Modiji and we must lock every fear away and make it a success. His acknowledgment of healthcare workers as “true tapaswis” is indeed a great motivation for all of us, and I urge all my fellow healthcare workers, the frontline warriors to be the pillars of strength in this difficult time.
I salute the spirit of each doctor, the nurses, the technicians, paramedical staff, supporting staff and administrators. And the unsung heroes who we never think about like the manufacturers, the transporters, the delivery boys who are ensuring that essential medication, food and diagnostic services are available for all of us on the frontline to treat you all.
Many thanks to the family members of the healthcare workers whom I really appreciate. We have displayed immense faith and courage in supporting them to carry on their duties. You must be very proud of them as they go to work.
Tomorrow when you step out of your homes, tell yourself, your family and your neighbors that they need not worry because you and many like you are facing this situation to fight this crisis for them.
I urge all my healthcare fraternity to come forward and once again be the answer to every prayer and fulfil our duty, the duty to serve and save people.
God bless the nation. Jai Hind! “
