Veteran Indian batsman VVS Laxman posted a video message on Twitter and said: “Coming from a family of doctors I always knew that the medical profession was the noblest of the profession. I’ve seen how doctors have not only used the knowledge and skill but also showed a lot of empathy and patience in treating the sick. So let us salute and pay tribute to the real superheroes who are not only risking their own health but are working tirelessly in fighting the pandemic.”
