In Coronavirus Pandemic, all the people including doctors, nurses, cleaning staff are playing their role with full vigor, but in this fight, some people are also playing a notable role who are not directly connected with the medical service. These people also include actress Shikha Malhotra, who is serving in this hour of crisis and is serving the patients of Corona virus. Now NITI Aayog has praised Shikha’s role on Twitter.

Actually, Shikha was a trend nurse before she came into the acting world and when the outbreak of Kovid 19 started, she took advantage of her training to take care of the patients.
Shikha said during a conversation that the tweet messages from “NITI Aayog” and “CMO Maharashtra” will give me strength and I will continue to contribute to defeat Corona at the earliest. Shikha further said- ’30 corona-affected patients have returned to their homes yesterday after recovering fully from our hospital.
Shikha started acting acting after studying B.Sc (Hons) Nursing from Vardhman Mahavir Medical College and Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi.
