Captain Virat Kohli led Indian cricketers paid tribute to doctors on National Doctors Day, at a time when many of them are serving as frontline warriors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Not just today but we should honor the spirit of our doctors and healthcare staff every day. Thank you for your contribution to helping so many people. I appreciate your passion and devotion,” Kohli said on Wednesday in a tweet.
“We all know the bravery and courage displayed by our Doctors in these tough times. Words can not explain what their actions mean to us. I just want to wish them the best. A humble request to all citizens to adhere to their protocols & make it easier for them” said India’s white-ball vice-captain, Rohit Sharma.
Not just today but everyday we should celebrate the spirit of our doctors and health care workers. Thank you for your commitment towards helping so many people. I salute your spirit and dedication. #NationalDoctorsDay 🙏🏼
