Bhubaneswar: Thousands of people across Odisha joined a minute’s silent prayer to honour the Covid warriors on Wednesday.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik led the silent prayer at 6 p.m. in honour of the Covid warriors across the state.

“In Odisha, 25 Covid warriors have sacrificed their lives in the service of mankind. Their supreme sacrifice for humanity will be remembered,” said the Chief Minister.

Odisha has crossed 25,000 recoveries, which would not have been possible without hard work, dedication and sacrifice of thousands of Covid warriors, he added.
