Doctors are ‘incarnations of God’: Indian PM Modi

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday described doctors and other health staff at the frontlines of the fight against coronavirus as "incarnations of God" and said those harassing them would face police action.

"In this hour of crisis, those in white coats are the incarnation of God. Today they are saving lives, putting their own lives in danger," the Prime Minister said, interacting via video link with the people of his constituency Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh on the coronavirus crisis.

To a question on the harassment of doctors, nurses and other staff handling coronavirus patients, the PM said he ordered all state police chiefs to take the most strict action against those harassing them.
