This be their prayer everyday (sic).”

He also penned a blog post, praising the healthcare workers. “They that relentlessly, selflessly, dedicate their time energy and care as warriors that battle against the Covid to bring relief and abandonment from the dreaded virus for their patients, also bring prayer to the Almighty forces with folded hands for relief (sic),” wrote the actor.

“They have not seen their loved ones for months .. they remain on the premises and within minutes are ready to rush to any situation that may arise .. ready to bring succour and relief .. ready to bring a smile on our faces; on the faces of ours (sic).”
