Virat Kohli said, “As we stay at home, there are those out there on the frontlines, putting their lives at risk, making sure that we are safe and healthy. To our doctors, healthcare staff all over the world, you are our superheroes. We might not have a vaccine or a cure for now, but we have you.” Priyanka Chopra, on the other hand, condemned the violence and attacks on healthcare professionals. She said, “They are putting their lives at risk to save us. I am talking about our frontline healthcare professionals. And the patients, it's not their fault. We should understand that there's no cure right now. It's our responsibility to show them kindness. My mom and dad are doctors. Many in my family are in healthcare, and they have kept their patients above them. They have taught me to take care of people. We have to let professionals do their job, and we have to let patients heal. I read stories of attacks on these people, and this should not be happening."
Meanwhile, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner urged people to donate for ‘I For India’, and also expressed the love they have for India. Check out some of the videos below:
