There is a theme for Doctor’s day every year. This year’s theme is yet to be announced but it can be assumed that it will be related to COVID 2019 pandemic. Lessen the Mortality of COVID-19
We all are aware that how Doctor’s and healthcare workers have served us for months together and are still serving us during this pandemic without even keeping their personal life and interest at priority.
Despite this, they faced many atrocities like abuse, violence, spitting, the pelting of stones, denial of entry to societies and residential accommodations to name a few.
We should always respect these people who risk their lives to render their services to humanity.
