While medical teams have been holding the fort at the hospitals, police officials have been manning the streets, ensuring there is no unnecessary movement and that citizens are home safe.
From making the people follow lockdown guidelines to helping them with ration and even feeding the poor, police officials have been tirelessly working around the clock.
Appreciating the efforts of these officials, cricketers Virat Kohli and Ishant Sharma, who hail from Delhi have, in a video message lauded the work being done by Delhi Police officials in this fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
“Heartening for me to know that the police service across the nation is helping so many people in these difficult times. I want to acknowledge the efforts of Delhi police who have not only performed their duties with absolute honesty but also taken food to the poor people on a daily basis, which is their utmost requirement. So, well done and keep putting in the same effort,” Kohli said in the video shared by the Delhi Police.
