Untiring efforts of Nursing Personnel made possible vaccination of one crore-plus people in single day: President Ram Nath Kovind

@rashtrapatibhvn
President Ram Nath Kovind has said that the milestone of vaccinating one crore-plus people in a single day in India was possible only because of dedication and untiring efforts of Nursing Personnel.
 
He was speaking on the occasion of presentation of the National Florence Nightingale Awards to the Nursing Personnel at a virtual ceremony today. Mr Kovind said that it was the unrelenting support provided by the nurses, which has helped us in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
The President said that many of our nurses have lost their lives in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
He noted that one of the awardees lost her life while treating COVID-19 patients.
 
Mr Kovind stated that the services and sacrifices cannot be evaluated in terms of any pecuniary benefit.
 
The President said, Nurses and midwives not only contribute to meeting the health-related Sustainable Development Goals targets, but also towards education, gender sensitisation and economic growth of the nation.
 
He said, the government has launched the 'Midwifery Service Initiative' to create a new cadre of midwives.
