I appeal to my 4.5 Cr sisters and brothers of Odisha to join a silent prayer at 6 PM tomorrow, to honour and commemorate the supreme sacrifice of our Covid Warriors: Naveen Patnaik

  • Human race is going through one of the toughest situations as COVID19 pandemic has challenged the human race like nothing before and every country is facing a very serious situation.

  • India is also facing the cruel onslaught as we are adding more than 50000 new cases every day.

  • It is the highest daily addition by any country which shows how serious the situation is in our country.

  • There is no room for complacency. We are almost five months into the fight and the people of Odisha are fighting this pandemic in the best possible manner

  • Tomorrow Odisha will cross 25,000 recoveries. This is a momentous occasion in our fight against COVID19.

  • Together we have been able to save more lives than in other parts of the country. Our fatality rate is one of the lowest in the country.

  • This would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of thousands of Covid Warriors who are working round the clock.

  • They have sacrificed hugely to keep the rest of us safe. Some have also sacrificed their lives in this deadly fight.

  • To honour and commemorate the supreme sacrifice of our Covid Warriors, I will lead a silent prayer in their memory.

  • I appeal to my 4.5 Cr sisters and brothers of Odisha to join this silent prayer at 6 PM tomorrow. This will be followed by an oath taking.

  • The oath will remind all of us to act responsibly and strictly follow the COVID19 guidelines to keep ourselves and our families safe.

  • The best way to honour the sacrifice of all our Covid Warriors is to support and cooperate with them and do our bit in the war against COVID19.
