·1-min read

Mumbai, May 12 (PTI) Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar on the occasion of 'International Nurses' Day' paid glowing tribute to the thousands of para-medics across India who are in the frontline in country's fight against the deadly coronavirus.

'Silently serving humanity forever. Sleepless nights, care and concern flow non stop for us when we aren't well. The pandemic has made us recognise their value more than ever before. Grateful for everything you do for us. Happy International Nurses Day,' tweeted Tendulkar.

Along with his tweet, Tendulkar also posted a picture of three nurses, who are selflessly serving the needy in Makunda hospital, which is in a remote part of Assam, bordering Mizoram and Tripura.

Tendulkar had tested positive for Covid-19, on March 27 and then had to be hospitalised for a brief period, before he returned home on April 8. He has decided to donate his plasma when eligible. He had also donated Rs 1 crore in country's fight against COVID-19.
