The prime minister has been effusive in his gratitude for physicians and other medical workers, who have performed a key role in combating the COVID-19 epidemic.

The prime minister has praised physicians and other medical workers for their efforts in combating the Covid-19 epidemic.
PM Modi mentioned Dr. BC Roy in his Mann Ki Baat on Sunday. In honor of Doctors’ Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi remarked, “We shall commemorate National Doctors’ Day on July 1. We must honor our physicians for ensuring that the problems posed by Covid-19 did not overcome India.”
In 1991, the Indian government created Doctors’ Day to honor BC Roy’s efforts. He was instrumental in the formation of the Medical Council of India and the Indian Medical Association. This day is commemorated to honor the contributions of doctors to the nation’s growth.
