Bengaluru (Karnataka): Asserting that the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a lesson of universal brotherhood, President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday said, ‘one cannot be safe if others are at risk.’
“The pandemic has taught the world that one cannot be safe if others are at risk. It is a lesson in universal brotherhood,” Kovind said at a convocation ceremony of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in Bengaluru.
