New Delhi: The Chief of the Army Staff General MM Naravane on Friday confirmed that there are currently eight positive cases of COVID-19 in the Indian Army.
“So far, we have only eight positive cases in the entire Indian Army, of which two are doctors and one nursing assistant, four are responding well to treatment and we had one case in Ladakh, now he is fully cured and has joined duty,” Gen Naravane told news agency ANI in Kupwara.
“Our personnel who have not come in contact with any infected person are being moved back to units, we have already catered for two special trains, from Bengaluru to Jammu and other from Bengaluru to Guwahati,” Gen Naravane added.
Gen Naravane added that while India is helping the world fight coronavirus, Pakistan was busy exporting terrorism. “While we are busy not only helping our own citizens but the rest of the world by sending medical teams and exporting medicines, on the other hand, Pakistan is only exporting terror. This doesn’t augur well,” he was quoted as saying.
Coronavirus cases in India have gone past the 13,000-mark with the death toll going up to 437.
