Bhubaneswar, August 4 (LocalWire): Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has appealed to all Odia people to join him in a prayer meeting tomorrow on live TV in honour of the COVID warriors who have sacrificed their lives in this pandemic.
The event is being organised tomorrow as Odisha will cross 25,000 COVID recoveries tomorrow, Patnaik said in a tweet.
“This is a momentous occasion in our fight against COVID-19.
Together we have been able to save more lives than in other parts of the country.
Our fatality rate at 0.57 percent is one of the lowest in the country,” he tweeted.
As this feat would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of thousands of COVID warriors who have worked around the clock, CM Patnaik will lead a prayer meet in the commemoration of those who have given their lives while fighting the pandemic.
This will be followed by an oath taking which will remind everyone to follow the COVID guidelines and act responsibly to keep themselves and their family safe.
