An Indian Army battalion is training local volunteers in a village in Jammu and Kashmir to provide basic medical assistance to Covid patients.

An Indian Army battalion has adopted Potha Katera village in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir in the battle against Covid-19. The Kalal-based battalion is preparing the locals to fight against the pandemic.

The Army battalion has started a training programme for volunteers on management of Covid-19 cases. On completion of the training, they will be placed at the Covid care facility in a government school in the village. Additionally, another Covid care facility will be set up in the village under the aegis of the Indian Army’s Romeo Force.

The training is for seven days. A series of talks and demonstrations during the week will help volunteers understand various aspects related to handling and providing assistance to asymptomatic Covid patients.

The training programme is being led by Indian Army doctors virtually. After the programme, the locals will be able to provide basic medical assistance to those suffering from Covid in remote areas where the medical infrastructure is inadequate.

The topics being covered during the training include management of patients, provision of basic medication and food supplements as per medical advice, oxygen support, observation of vital signs and other administrative issues.

The villagers, especially youngsters, are participating with a lot of enthusiasm. They expressed their gratitude to the Indian Army for its outreach and humanitarian assistance.
