A few days ago, Orissa DGP asked the superintendents of police not to allow the temporary closure of police stations if the personnel get infected by Covid 19. In a video conference, the director general of police Abhay said temporary arrangements should be made on the campus of the affected police stations for the convenience of complainants.
According to police sources, four of the 18 Covid-19 infected police have been sent to the Covid hospital and the rest are in home-quarantine.
