PAYS TRIB­UTE TO DOC­TORS, NURSES FROM HOSPI­TAL

He calls them ‘god like in­car­na­tions, com­pan­ions of the suf­ferer’

Fiji Sun - - NATION -

Ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan has shared an ap­pre­ci­a­tion post for doc­tors on Twit­ter. The ac­tor was di­ag­nosed with COVID-19 last Sun­day and was ad­mit­ted to Mumbai’s Nana­vati Hospi­tal.

The ac­tor, in his tweet, has paid a trib­ute to doc­tors for their selfless ser­vice to hu­man­ity.

“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,” he wrote in his tweet.

Amitabh’s son, ac­tor Ab­hishek Bachchan; daugh­ter-in-law, ac­tor Aish­warya Rai; and grand­daugh­ter Aarad­hya have also been di­ag­nosed with the novel coro­n­avirus. While Ab­hishek was ad­mit­ted to the hospi­tal with him, Aish­warya and Aarad­hya are in quar­an­tine at home.

Amitabh had shared a note of thanks to his fans and fol­low­ers for their good wishes for the fam­ily’s health.

“It shall not be pos­si­ble for me to ac­knowl­edge and re­spond to all the prayers and wishes ex­pressed by them that have shown con­cern to­wards Ab­hishek, Aish­warya, Aarad­hya and me .. I put my hands to­gether and say ..Thank you for your eter­nal love and af­fec­tion,” he had writ­ten.

Bachchans re­cov­er­ing well

Hospi­tal sources said that Amitabh and Ab­hishek are do­ing well. “Both are sta­ble and are re­spond­ing well to the treat­ment. They will have to be in the hospi­tal for at least seven days,” a hospi­tal in­sider told PTI. Post the ac­tors’ di­ag­no­sis, 26 staff mem­bers work­ing at their bun­ga­lows were also tested for COVID-19.

Amitabh Bachchan posted a photo on In­sta­gram when he was con­firmed pos­i­tive for COVID-19.
