Panjim: A helicopter of the Indian Navy showered petals on two medical facilities in Goa on Sunday as a mark of respect for the dedication and commitment of health workers in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic
Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane expressed that the Navy’s gesture would boost the morale of the health staff.
The helicopter dropped flower petals on the Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) building at Bambolim near here in North Goa district, and the specially-designated COVID-19 hospital at Margao in South Goa district.
Rane, who was present in an open area next to the GMCH building along with health workers when the helicopter showered petals, appreciated the “heartening gesture” and said it was an emotional and encouraging step.
A heartening gesture by the @indiannavy, @adgpi & officers of @IndiaCoastGuard who honoured our #CoronaWarriors in Goa. We salute our Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi Ji for this heartwarming gesture of felicitating the frontline workers in our fight against #COVID19. pic.twitter.com/eRgfTeHDI7
