If there is one thing we have seen in this pandemic, it's that a doctor will do anything to save their patients' lives.
They will work for hours, they won't go home for days and they will risk their own lives if it means that the patient has even 1% chance of surviving in serious cases.
This kind of selflessness is often beyond comprehension for people, who have taken the opportunity today, to thank the medics on National Doctors' Day.
That's correct, July 1 is celebrated as Doctors' Day in India, and people are using #ThankYou to mark the occasion. Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
#doctorsday is a reminder to all of us to take some time out to appreciate them for their dedication and selfless service.They have been the Frontline warriors in this pandemic, putting their lyf in danger. A big Salute to all savior of mankind.🙏 #ThankYou #doctorsday2020 pic.twitter.com/jv8dPJt8bk— Ritu Singh (@RituSin29094182) July 1, 2020

Not all heroes wear capes, some have stethoscopes around their necks and wear scrubs, masks and PPE kit. An appreciation post for our doctors, nurses and staff for their time, effort, hard work, professionalism.— Rain Infotech (@raininfotech) July 1, 2020
