Army to punish officers, jawans who hide Covid-19 symptoms

Mar 30, 2020 21:11 IST

Army personnel concealing symptoms for Covid-19 and failing to disclose contact with infected persons and travel details to areas having cases of the infection will face punitive action under the Army Act. The Army headquarters has sent an advisory to all the Army bases, formations and wings prescribing specific measures to insulate the 1.3 million force from the coronavirus and warning about punitive action if the norms are breached. The advisory said it has been made "obligatory" to immediately disclose any symptoms like cough, throat pain, fever, breathing difficulty to concerned authorities.
