Kochi: The woman who is looking simple and ordinary in the picture is the Health Minister of Kerala. She is a Bachelor in Chemistry. After educating children in a high school until 2004, she entered politics to serve people. We are talking about Kerala health minister K. K. Shailaja who is the primary health warrior of the state in the fight to stop novel coronavirus. She is popularly known as Teacher Amma.
The health minister has also prevented deaths due to infection of the Nipah virus spread in 2018. Just two years after this, today, the way she is the state in winning the fight against the global epidemic is praiseworthy. She is working very hard to save people from this crisis. She leaves the office at 12 o'clock at night. She is the last one to left the office. Even at home, she checks files from 2.30 - 3.00 pm, then reaches office at seven in the morning.
Many common people know her personal mobile number. During the Corona crisis, people calls her whenever they are in problems. She herself picked up the phone and convinced everyone. Instead of taking someone along, she roams alone in all the hospitals and inspects the situation with a slight smile on her face.
She holds a press conference daily to inform the situation regularly. She gives all credit to her team. She said, "I don't do anything special. I have a degree in chemistry so I have some knowledge about molecules and medicines. Otherwise, it is always a team effort." Like a warrior, Shailaja stands firmly to save Kerala from disaster. We salute her for selfless service and saving people from the deadly COVID-19.
