Amid the second wave of Corona, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday spoke to doctors, paramedical staff and other frontline health workers from his parliamentary constituency Varanasi. During this, PM Modi got emotional while addressing the doctors. PM Modi said that this virus has taken away many of our loved ones from us. I pay my respects to all those people, expressing my condolences to their families.

PM Modi said, I, as a servant of Kashi, sincerely thank every Kashiwasi. Especially the work done by our doctors, nurses, ward boys and ambulance drivers is truly commendable.
The preparations that the administration has made during the second wave, we have to keep fit like this even after the case is reduced. Also, constant statistics and situations have to be monitored.
In the second wave of Corona, we have also seen the safety of the vaccine. Due to the safety of the vaccine, to a large extent our front line workers have been able to serve the people safely. This protection cover will reach everyone in the coming time.
Asha and ANM sisters also play a very important role in the ongoing war against Kovid in the villages. I would like that their potential and experience are also taken advantage of as much as possible.

With your tenacity, and with the common efforts of all of us, you have handled this attack of epidemic to a great extent. But now is not the time for satisfaction, we have to fight a long battle right now. Right now we have to pay a lot of attention to the rural areas of Benaras and Purvanchal as well.

The speed with which Banaras has increased the number of oxygen and ICU beds in such a short time, the way Pandit Rajan Mishra Kovid Hospital has been activated so soon, is also an example in itself.

Even in this extraordinary situation, it has been possible to handle this pressure only with the great diligence of our doctors, health workers. All of you worked day and night to save the lives of each and every patient. Troubles for self, comfort, rose above all and continued working hard.
