On October 2, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) released a poster carrying the names and photographs of 515 doctors — 492 males and 23 females — who died on the line of duty while treating Covid-19 patients.
The poster is a tribute paid to the martyred doctors on the occasion of the 151st birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, said the apex association of doctors in the country.
“IMA dedicates the sacrifice of 515 Indian doctors in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic to the nation. We salute these martyrs, and all the nurses and healthcare workers who sacrificed their lives as well,” the message along with the poster read.
