During these telephonic talks, he gathers first hand information about the treatment and steps taken by the administration to contain the spread of the virus.

While he held telephonic chats with some doctors on Thursday, similar conversations were held on March 23 and 24 when he engaged in talks with coronavirus patients and those kept under home quarantine upon their return from abroad. A video of Rupani talking with doctors using 'CM Dash Board' system was released by the Gujarat government on Thursday.

In one of the conversations, Rupani told a doctor the entire medical fraternity is no less than God for people. "I thank everyone of you for doing such selfless service. You have put your own lives at risk to save others.
