To augment medical care services to fight the brutal second COVID-19 wave, doctors and other staff from the Remount Veterinary Corps have been roped in by the armed forces, essentially to help run patient facilitation centres, officials said on Sunday.

Around 18 officers, over 120 junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and other ranks have been deployed in specially created COVID-19 facilities in the national capital, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Varanasi and Patna under operation ‘CO-JEET’, which was started by the combined armed forces in view of the pandemic.

‘CO-JEET’ stands for co-workers of all three services who will finally have ‘Jeet’ (victory) over COVID-19.

Operation ‘Co-JEET’ has engaged personnel of the three wings of the armed forces – the Army, the Air Force and the Navy
