Every 7th doctor in the US is an Indian

Every seventh doctor in the US is an Indian. Yes, you read that right. Though Indian Americans are only 1.2 per cent of the American population, 9 per cent of the doctors in the US are of Indian descent and half of them are not second-generation immigrants. That’s not all, Indian-American doctors serve every seventh patient in the country. These doctors also played a pivotal role during Covid crisis in the US. American Physicians of Indian-Origin (AAPI) President Dr Suresh Reddy, applauding the hundreds of thousands of Indian-origin medical personnel bravely fighting against the virus, said that “every 7th doctor in the US is an Indian and they are at the frontlines, working as soldiers and fighting the virus.”
She told PTI, “The entire medical fraternity has become the Army right now, fighting the coronavirus.”
