CRPF, BSF open hospitals nationwide for COVID-19 treatment of veterans, families of slain soldiers

All Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and BSF healthcare centres in the country will be open for COVID-19 treatment of their veterans and families of troops who laid down their lives in the line of duty, a senior officer said on Tuesday. The move by the two paramilitary forces comes in the backdrop of a similar recent decision announced by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).

The CRPF has a chain of 19 healthcare hospitals in the country and as per an order issued by its headquarters here, all its retired personnel, their dependents and families of troops who were killed in the line of duty “will be provided initial care, advice and nursing care” for coronavirus.

The order said these hospitals will also help such patients get access to “treatment in government hospitals with the help of district surveillance officers, as per the requirements of clinical severity.”
