With the country grappling with the spread of coronavirus cases, every effort is underway to try and stem this. The lockdown is one way to try and curb the spread of Covid-19 and police are also working round-the-clock, to ensure that the lockdown rules are being followed by the people. To help the cops in their duty and ensure they stay fit, Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road, in association with Nayanagar police station at Mira Road, conducted a free general health check-up drive for these officers. In this one-time activity, around 20 police officers (over the age group of 50+) were screened. They received a check-up from a physician as well as RBS, BP, temperature monitoring and ECG were done.
Says Dr Pritam Moon, Internal Medicine Consultant of the hospital, “Due to lockdown, police are on duty and taking continuous care for us and our safety. Our hospital has supported an initiative as a CSR responsibility and more than 15 police personnel came for the screening of BP, ECG, and regular check-ups.
Adding a note of appreciation, police inspector Kailas Barve, “It was a great pleasure to have a support of Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road to help us with screening check-up. In our daily busy schedule, it’s difficult to intervene check-ups.”
