Nagpur. As the number of corona infected people is increasing in the city, the risk of corona in the police department is also increasing. In the last 5 days, 68 police officers and employees were found positive. The good thing is that all are healthy and they have been asked to isolate at home. After the start of the third wave in the city, CP Amitesh Kumar had asked the officers and employees of all the departments to get the rapid antigen test done from time to time.
The investigation campaign is being run by the Municipality in various police stations. About 5 days ago 24 employees including 3 inspectors of Koradi, Jaripatka and EOW were found positive. After that gradually the figure started increasing. 2 days ago, DCP Zone 3 Gajanan Rajmane also got his investigation done and his report came positive on Wednesday.
For 4 days only 5-6 employees were getting disrupted but on Thursday the figure suddenly increased. Employees were investigated in various police stations and departments on Wednesday. 22 policemen were found positive from Head Quarter, Sadar Traffic Zone, Sakardara, Beltarodi, Crime Branch, Pardi, Kamathi and Ranapratapnagar. Two sub-inspectors of Jaripatka also got information about getting infected.
Take care, increase immunity
Talking to Chief Medical Officer Dr. Sandeep Shinde about the sudden increasing infection in the police department, he told that CP Amitesh Kumar has given instructions to get more and more tests done. Along with this, he has also been asked to take full care of the health of the officers and employees found infected. All the officers and employees found infected are completely healthy. Some are showing minor symptoms.
Adequate medicines are being made available to all by the Welfare Department. Everyone should use mask and sanitizer. Almost the entire department is vaccinated but this does not mean that corona infection cannot happen. Vaccines can reduce the intensity of the virus. So everyone should be careful.
