Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, today, in a press conference said,
During a war, a soldier protects his country, risks his life…. our whole nation is indebted to them. Today, the job that you guys (health workers) are doing is no less than that of a soldier. You are risking your life to save people of this country
This sentiment was further annotated by his pledge to provide Rs. 1 Crore to the family of the Coronavirus warriors on the frontline – the health workers.
