Be cautious not complacent, says Dr Jagdish in his new video ‘Doctor ka Punchnama’

Bengaluru, 29 January, 2021: Practo, India’s leading digital healthcare company, has released  a new video today ’Doctor ka Punchnama’, in an effort to warn people against being increasingly complacent about Coronavirus. Created in collaboration with Dr Jagdish Chaturvedi – an ENT surgeon and a writer and comedian,  this awareness video reflects the thoughts that may have crossed every doctor’s mind when badgered with repetitive questions about whether or not they should continue taking precautions.  

It took months of hard work and dedication for healthcare workers to take us to the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, the vaccination programme has brought a glimmer of hope, but we are still far from completely eradicating the disease. The latest video aims to drive home the message that keeping the mask on, sanitizing our hands, and maintaining physical distancing are the necessary norms that we should continue following,” says Dr Jagdish Chaturvedi.

In the style of a spontaneous rant, Dr Jagdish speaks no holds barred as he nudges viewers to support the doctors community in ensuring everyone’s good health and safety.
