Apr 01, 2020 17:07 IST

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced a sum of ₹1 crore for families of those health workers who die while handling patients of the Covid-19 disease. He said it will be a mark of ‘respect to their service’ for sanitation workers, doctors or nurses, and their family. The chief minister said it will not matter if the Covid-19 warriors are from private or government sector and all are eligible for it. His announcement comes after Centre announced special insurance cover of ₹50 lakh for doctors, nurses, paramedics, technicians, and other health care professionals involved in the care of Covid-19 patients.
