Chandigarh, May 6
Police personnel, sanitation workers, Panchayati Raj personnel and other officials performing duties to contain Covid are being provided with ayurvedic and homoeopathic medicines in Haryana to improve their immunity.
Guduchi ghan vati, sumshmani vati, anu tail, agashtya haritki and sitopladi churna are some of the ayurvedic medicines and arsenicum album-30, a homoeopathic drug, are among the medicines being distributed to the Covid warriors.
Rajeev Arora, Additional Chief Secretary, Health Department, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also asked people to adopt ayurvedic immunity-boosting measures for self-care during Covid crisis and also shared general steps to enhance body’s natural defence system.
“While there is no medicine for Covid as of now, it will be good to take preventive measures to boost our immunity during this time. As the Covid crisis is deepening up, the ayurvedic immunity-boosting measures are important for people,” he said.
He added that ayurvedic medical officers were distributing these medicines to persons of different departments involved in Covid duties.
He said instructions had been issued for distribution of immunity-boosting medicines among workers and senior citizens in Gurugram, Faridabad, Sonepat, Palwal and Jhajjar districts.
An MoU has been signed between Shaheed Hassan Khan Mewati Government Medical College, Nalhar, in Nuh district, which has been designated exclusively as a Covid hospital in the state and Shri Krishna Ayush University, Kurukshetra, to start ayurvedic treatment for Covid patients.
Arora said 206 Ayush medical officers were being recruited across the state to tackle the Covid crisis effectively.
