Sister Christina from Manipur became a social media rage on Thursday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with her at Ram Manohar Lohia hospital where he visited today to salute health workers as India administered over one billion Covid shots.

“It has been a long journey for me and a satisfying one. I am proud to have administered 15,000 doses as of today. In the initial days people were hesitant but gradually as everyone came forward, the hesitancy declined and confidence in vaccination improved. People also started cooperating,” she said, after PM Modi left RML today.

In her interaction with the PM earlier, Christina said her parents who used to earlier fear her Covid duties gradually became supportive and backed her decision to continue serving people through the pandemic.
