Pimpri, 23 April 2021: To provide better health services to Pimpri Chinchwad police officials affected with COVID-19, a 30-bed dedicated COVID-19 ward has been set up at the DY Patil Hospital in Pimpri.


Commissioner of Police Krishna Prakash inaugurated the ward on Friday in the presence of Dr DY Patil University Chancellor Dr PD Patil, Additional Commissioner of Police Ramnath Pokale, DCP Sudhir Hiremath, Manchak Ipper, Anand Bhoite, Dr Yashraj Patil, Dr JS Bhawalkar, and Dr HS Chavan.

“A ward with 30 oxygen beds has been set up for police officials affected with COVID-19. The on-duty police officers and constables work together day and night to enforce the rules for the prevention of COVID-19. Therefore, the possibility of them getting infected with the virus is high. Hence, we have set up the ward to provide better facilities to treat them and boost their morale,” Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash said.


The commissioner contacted Dr PD Patil who immediately responded positively and set up a special ward with 30 beds for police officials at DY Patil Hospital in Pimpri. All 30 beds are equipped with oxygen supply.

Police are working as frontline warriors in the fight against COVID-19. To date, a total of 791 police personnel from the Pimpri-Chinchwad Police Commissionerate have been affected by COVID019. The kin of those, who have lost their lives on duty, have been recruited in the police department on basis of compassionate grounds.


Pimpri-Chinchwad police have also distributed masks, sanitizers, hand gloves, and goggles to police officers and constables to keep them safe from COVID-19 while they are performing their duties. They have also been given a wristwatch that monitors their heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen level, blood pressure, etc.


A special group has been formed for police officers who have been affected by COVID-19 through which the officers will present their problems and immediate action will be taken to resolve their problems. Police officials infected with COVID-19 are being provided plasma, injections like Remdesivir, etc., as per requirement.


“Through all these measures, we want to ensure that police personnel don’t get infected with COVID-19 and if they do, then we want to make the best treatment available for them,” the police commissioner concluded.
