According to a Zee News report, the PPE kits being prepared by the CRPF jawans are being distributed to hospitals and to the police personnel who are among the frontline heroes of India's war against Covid-19.
The jawans are preparing kits day and night. The masks are being prepared at a CRPF centre in Delhi's RK Puram area.
The report says that an official has informed that on a daily basis, 300 to 400 PPE kits and thousands of masks are being prepared. These masks are being sent to different hospitals across the country. The masks are also being provided to jawans manning work in the fight against the spread of the virus.
