The 77-year-old actor, who tested positive for the coronavirus three weeks ago, wrote on Twitter,

They work in extreme conditions, so our conditions are safe .. the Gods own angels in white PPE units, Doctors, nurses, support staff .. yet they still take time out to pray for who they struggle to cure – their patients! This be their prayer everyday.

Pristine white their layered dress, dedicated to serve they be, god like incarnations they, companions of the sufferer they, erased they their ego have, to us they have embraced in care, they be the divine destination, they fly the flags of humanity.

Immediately after the actor’s diagnosis, his social media handles were flooded with messages and wishes for his speedy recovery. Big B frequently write to his followers from the Hospital’s COVID ward to thank for their love and wishes. In one of his posts he wrote,

The hands that you raise in love and support are my strength .. this I shall never ever allow to vanish from my system .. so help me God !

He also tweeted that individually thanking everyone was not possible but he was touched by the outpouring of love.

A doctor at Nanavati hospital had earlier informed that Mr. Bachchan is clinically stable and does not require aggressive treatment. However, some of his fans in Kolkata are conducting a prayer ceremony called “mahamritunjay yagna” for his good health and they plan to continue the ‘yagna’ till he is completely recovered from the disease.

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
