It has been a year and still, the entire world continues to reel under Coronavirus. At the time when Covid cases were rising alarmingly in India, people were advised to stay at home in order to minimize the risk of catching the infection. But the cops continued to work hard and protect society by risking their lives.
Dr. Roy Patankar, Director and Gastroenterologist, Zen Multispeciality Hospital, highlighted, “Policing is stressful as it involves both physical and mental stress and irregular sleep pattern. Female cops had erratic schedules and worked in longer shifts during the pandemic by neglecting their own health and making sure that society is safe. There are many female cops who got infected with the deadly virus and were back on duty once they recover. These female cops have discharged their duties of protecting the citizens and the city. Like us, it is equally essential for cops to maintain the right body weight and exercise
regularly. We take pride in serving female cops who were on toes during the Covid-19 outbreak.”
Shri Sanjay Darade, Additional Commissioner of Police, East Region, Mumbai “First of all, I wish each and every woman a Happy Women’s day and urge people to celebrate it every day. Women should be respected every day. There are many women like Rani Laxmi Bai, Annie Besant, Sarojini Naidu, Ahilyabai Holkar, Savitribai Phule, and many others who have succeeded in social, political, economic and cultural aspects of life. Today, Zen Hospital is conducting health check-ups under the guidance of Dr. Patankar for female cops.”
Police Inspector Sanjay Pujari Additional charge ACP East adds, “I urge all female personnel to discuss woman-specific health issues with the doctor. More and more women should get benefit from this well camp. Discuss issues like cancer that is rapidly spreading among women. Women tend to neglect their health and this, in turn, gives rise to complications in the future. Female cops should resolve all your health problems before leaving the camp, do the required tests under the guidance of the doctor, and seek prompt treatment. I would like to thank Zen Hospital for coming forward and caring for the female cop’s health through this camp.”
