The Kalank actor took to his Twitter handle and shared a post while extending his wishes for the nurses and frontline staff who are working hard towards treating people.

So many lives have been saved because of the selfless work that our nurses and the healthcare professionals are doing. Can't thank them enough for putting their lives at risk to save the lives of others. #InternationalNursesDay— Sanjay Dutt (@duttsanjay) May 12, 2020
According to the statement released on the official website of the World Health Organisation, the organization joins hundreds of partners worldwide to highlight the importance of nurses in the healthcare continuum and thank them for what they are doing for the people. "Historically, as well as today, nurses are at the forefront of fighting epidemics and pandemics - providing high quality and respectful treatment and care. They are often the first and sometimes the only health professional that people see and the quality of their initial assessment, care, and treatment is vital," the statement read.
The statement also asked the government to initiate steps towards investing in nurses. " In this year of the Nurse and the Midwife, now more than ever, it is essential that governments support and invest in their nurses.
