Actor Amitabh Bachchan Gets The Second Dose Of COVID-19 Vaccine, Here’s How He Informed Netizens

New Delhi: Last week, Megastar Amitabh Bachchan received his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. On May 16 (Sunday) Big B took to social media to share the news. The 78-year-old actor posted a picture of himself from the vaccination centre, where he is seen taking the jab for the second time. The actor posted an update along with a quirky caption. Referring to the cricket term “Doosra”, a type of delivery by an off-spin bowler in the game, he wrote, “Doosra bhi ho gaya. COVID wala, Cricket wala nahin (“Doosra” happened, COVID one,

not the Cricket one), sorry sorry that was a really bad one…”

Recently, Big B also donated Rs. 2 crores to Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur COVID Care Centre at the Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in Delhi to help them combat the coronavirus crisis. Manjinder Singh Sirsa, president of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, shared the news on Twitter. He said, “‘Sikhs are Legendary, salute to their service’. These were the words of @SrBachchan Ji when he contributed Rs. 2 Cr to Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Covid Care Facility.”

Apart from all this, from time and again, megastar Amitabh Bachchan has also shared messages on his social media, urging people to follow COVID-19 appropriate behaviour at all times and help India in this crisis of time. Earlier this year, Amitabh Bachchan speaking to NDTV as a part of NDTV-Dettol Banega Swasth India special show said,

COVID-19 just seemed to have happened and due to it, we are seeing a lot of change in the behaviour and habits. Now, we are linking the two most important things together – hygiene and sanitation. The need of the hour is to focus on strengthening hygiene and sanitation sectors in our country so that we can further build healthier communities.

The campaign ambassador also shared his Swasthya Mantra for good health in these tough times and said,

Coronavirus is a type of virus that is looking for a home and that home is your lungs as it is where it can live. If the virus stays alive in your lungs it will make you sick. It can come from anywhere – from surfaces, you may touch. That is why we all need to wash hands regularly and as frequently as possible. Because if we will not, our hands will get infected and if we touch our face, nose or mouth via those infected hands, the virus will infect us and our lives. We need to practice handwashing as that is the only thing that will help us protect from the virus and will make our hands swasth.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
