May 12 holds special significance worldwide as this day marks the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the iconic British social reformer who is also known as the founder of modern nursing.
Since 1965, this day has been celebrated as International Nurses Day, a day to appreciate the humanitarian work done by nurses around the world. This year, the importance of this day has increased even more as the medical fraternity has become a ray of hope against the deadly coronavirus epidemic worldwide.
Ayushmann Khurrana praised the exemplary contribution of nurses in fighting coronovirus and said, “For their contribution to humanity and society, we are marking this day every year as International Nurses Day. This year we should all salute our front-line warriors who are the real heroes, fighting coronovirus every day and saving lives despite being at the most risk. “
Ayushmann Khurrana says, “Nurse: A Voice to Lead to World Health” – the theme of this year’s Nurses Day – it couldn’t be better. We will be indebted to the nurses forever because at the time she can be safe with her family, she is working to save the world from this epidemic. I just want to say my heartfelt thanks to them and their families. “
