About 60 CISF personnel participated in the orientation programme at VSI Airport, Port Blair. The orientation programme was imparted by Dr. Avijit Roy, Deputy Director (Health)/Nodal Officer (COVID-2019). The personnel were informed about the background of COVID-2019, present scenario, symptomatology, prevention control of nCOV-2019, about personnel hygiene and better nutrition to boost immunity.
