1. Shikha Malhotra - Bollywood Actress:
Doctors and nurses around the world are working round the clock to help and treat COVID-19 patients. They are, in fact, keeping their lives on stake to abide by their duties and responsibilities. After all, after completing their respective degrees, the doctors and nurses take an oath to help and serve people all their life no matter what.
Probably, this is the reason why many doctors around the world are coming out from their retirement to help coronavirus patients.
And the same thing apparently encouraged Bollywood actress Shikha Malhotra to join the hospital during the coronavirus outbreak. The actress who has shared the screen with notable actor Sanjay Mishra in Kaanchli had completed her course in nursing back in 2014 from Delhi’s Vardhman Mahavir Medical College in Safdarjung Hospital.
“After passing the course in college, we had taken the oath to serve society. I think this is the time to do so,” she said.
Shikha is certainly the kind of hero our country needs right now. Kudos to you, nurse Shikha!

5. Professor Seema Mishra - University of Hyderabad:
Dr. Seema Mishra, faculty at University of Hyderabad, has designed potential vaccine candidates, called T cell epitopes, against all structural and non-structural proteins of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) for experimental testing.
These vaccine candidates are small coronaviral peptides which are used by cells to trigger an immune response to destroy cells harbouring the viral peptides.
Using powerful immunoinformatics approaches with computational softwares, Dr Seema Mishra has designed these potential epitopes in a way that can be used to vaccinate an entire population.
India, being the most crowded country is still the not much affected country, that shocks the whole world, but just don't know that apart from the great leader at the top, Mr. Narendra Modi, there are also the women that strive to save their nation.
We salute all such men & women whom we are not able to cover here but your slefless service is an inspiration & India owes you all.
