'Two years ago, what began as a respiratory disease in a small part of the world, has today caused a global pandemic. Our world has changed completely forever, it is not the same world we know anymore. Everyone knows the saying - health is wealth,' Mr Bachchan said at the Telethon.

Mr Bachchan says that COVID-19 has taught us that we need to work together. 'It is necessary for the government to improve the status of healthcare facilities and nutrition. At the same time, as citizens, we need to take care of ourselves and pay attention to our health. We need to inculcate habits with which we receive good nutrition and live hygienically.'

"If we don't take care of ourselves, it leads to an added expense on diseases. Even before this pandemic, health issues used to cause a 15 per cent decline in the global GDP" Mr Bachchan points out
