The National Doctor’s Day is even more significant this year, given the COVID-19 pandemic. Every year, on July 1, India celebrates the National Doctor’s Day in commemoration of the birth of Bharat Ratna Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy, who was an eminent Indian physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal. In fact, he is often termed as the architect of the state of West Bengal. He was born on July 1, 1882, and coincidentally died on the same date in 1962. After achieving his medical degree in Kolkata, Dr Roy moved to London to get his MRCP and FRCS degrees.

1991 was the year in which this celebration was introduced for the first time. The day is dedicated to all those who work in the health sector, who fulfill their duties towards the country’s citizens. The National Doctor’s Day is even more in focus this year, as lakhs of doctors from around the country are braving the COVID-19 pandemic to treat their patients and giving proper care to them.
