The world is looking up to our doctors, nurses, medical staff and scientific community with hope and gratitude. The world seeks both care and cure from you, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the 25th foundation day and Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences.

“Earlier, the debates on globalisation have focused on economic issues. Now, the world must unite and focus on humanity centric aspects of development.”

“Today the world is facing one of the biggest crisis since the two world wars. Like the world changed pre and post-World Wars, the same way the pre and post Covid world will be different,” he said

At the root of India’s brave fight against Covid-19 is the hard-work of the medical community and our Corona warriors. “In fact, doctors and medical workers are like soldiers, but without the soldiers’ uniform. The virus may be an invisible enemy, but our Corona warriors, medical workers are invincible. In the battle of Invisible versus Invincible, our medical workers are sure to win,” he said.

Covid-19 Hackathon

Modi also flagged-off the Covid-19 Innovation Hackathon Challenge.

Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar congratulated the RGUHS family and said there could not have been a better meaningful way to celebrate 25th Foundation Day than having Prime Minister inaugurate the Covid19 Innovation Hackathon challenge during this Covid-19 crisis.

Of the 187 new cases reported in state, 117 cases were with inter-state travel history to Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan and international returnees from UAE.

The tally is now 3,408 cases. Total discharged after treatment is 1,328 and total death 54.
