Here’s what Priyanka said: “Unexpected, uncontrolled, unparallaled – the coronavirus has forged a brutal path across the world. Lockdown, quarantine, social distancing – these are new normal. We are living away from each other to stay protected. However, we are together in our minds and hearts. What about those who can’t sit at their homes and wait for all this to get over? They are working for us by risking their lives in the current times. I am talking about the frontline healthcare workers, policemen and sanitation workers among all those who are working tirelessly for us. They need our support and compassion. We have to ensure that we stand with these selfless professionals. I belong to a family where both my parents are doctors and several other members are also healthcare professionals. They have taught me to put the need of others before you. The attacks on such people are disturbing and should not happen. Let’s be together in this. Let’s donate.”
