India’s fight against the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 has been led by the “medical community and corona warriors”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday, stressing that “violence, abuse and rude behaviour against the frontline workers is not acceptable”.
“The virus may be an invisible enemy. But our warriors, medical workers are invincible. In the battle of invisible vs invincible, our medical workers are sure to win,” PM Modi said during a video conference.

“At the root of India’s brave fight against COVID-19 is the hardwork of the medical community and our corona warriors. In fact, doctors and medical workers are like soldiers, but without the soldiers’ uniform,” he added.
