2. During this period, considerable sacrifice is being made by every Indian in adhering to norms of social distancing, curbs on personal movements and even suffering economic hardship. However, it is the *CORONA WARRIORS* who are continuing to the risk their lives to ensure that the spread of the virus is checked at every stage. These frontline warriors are the doctors and nurses, the district & block health workers at the grassroot level, the aganwadi members who take considerable risk in conducting Corona audit often in very challenging conditions, members of the Police force who help enforce the restrictions, workers involved in ensuring basic amenities and essential services. They form the frontline of our nation's battle against the pandemic. The Indian Armed Forces salute these warriors and are grateful for their sacrifice.
