Zen Multispecialty Hospital Organised Free Health Check-up Camps For more than 80 women police officers who braved COVID and worked tirelessly.
MUMBAI: On the occasion Of International Women’s Day, Zen Multi-speciality Hospital, Chembur, Mumbai, organized a health-check-up camp exclusively for women police. More than 80 women officers participated in the camp and they were offered various blood investigations to check for heart, kidney, and liver ailments.
The event was followed by talks on various common and gynaecology-related issues by gynaecologists with physician and chest physician.
The entire world continues to reel under Coronavirus. At the time when Covid cases were rising alarmingly in India, people were advised to stay at home in order to minimize the risk of catching the infection. But the police continued to work risking their lives.
Dr. Roy Patankar, Director and Gastroenterologist of Zen Multispeciality Hospital, said, “Policing is stressful as it involves both physical and mental strain and irregular sleep pattern. Female police had erratic schedules and worked in longer shifts during the pandemic by neglecting their own health to ensure sure that the society is safe. There are many women police who got infected with the deadly virus and were back on duty once they recovered.”
Like anyone else, it is equally essential for the police to maintain the right body weight and do regular exercise, he said.
Sanjay Darade, Additional Commissioner of Police, East Region, Mumbai, said Women should be respected every day. He appreciated Zen hospital for holding the medical camp for lady police.
Police Inspector Sanjay Pujari thanked Zen Hospital for caring for the female police’s health.
