Though the efficacy of homeopathy and ayurveda is yet to be tested in treating Covid-19, CRPF in Jharkhand has made certain additions to the daily diet of their jawans using alternate medicine to boost their immunity after receiving guidelines from the Union ministry of Ayush.
CRPF IG (Jharkhand-Bihar region) Rajkumar said, “We are now providing turmeric milk and chyavanprash to all our personnel twice a day. Provisions for warm water and herbal drinks have also been made at every company’s location. We also encourage the jawans to practice yoga and meditation.”
He said homeopathy medicines like Arsenic Album and Camphora have also been distributed among the personnel in both the states to boost immunity.
According to the ministry guidelines, 10gm chyawanprash in the morning, herbal tea or kadha and turmeric milk help in boosting immunity. Around 22,000 CRPF personnel are engaged primarily in anti-extremist operations at 112 locations across the state. In Ranchi, two companies of the paramilitary force are deployed in Hindpiri and other localities to ensure lockdown norms are followed.
Rajkumar said, “CRPF personnel are on the frontline in the battle against the virus in Jharkhand and a part of the force has also been posted in Hindpiri, a containment zone. We are also engaged in anti-extremist operations in rural areas where a large number of migrants are returning from all over the country. We have to ensure that the immunity levels of our jawans remain high.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to people of the nation to follow Ayush ministry's directions to boost immunity. He added that CRPFF has not deployed jawans above 50 years of age and those with health issues on Covid duty in the state. Jharkhand Police had issued a similar order on Monday advising all district police chiefs to not engage personnel above 50 and those suffering from heart ailments, asthma, kidney-related illnesses or other serious diseases for Covid-19 duty at hot spots, containment zones, hospitals and quarantine centres.
