Health Minister Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj on Saturday met the family members of Corona Warrior Late Satinder Hans, who lost her life in the line of duty during the Covid pandemic. Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj handed over a cheque of Rs. 1 crore to the family of the late Corona Warrior on behalf of the Kejriwal Government. The Health Minister recalled that late Smt. Satinder Hans, resident of Virendra Nagar, was posted as a Senior Nursing Officer at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital. While serving and supporting patients at the hospital, she contracted the Coronavirus herself and consequently passed away. Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj, while speaking to her family said that even though the ex-gratia amount can not compensate for the loss caused to the family, the family members would feel some reprieve and be able to use the amount towards improving their future.
The Health Minister reached Virendra Nagar and consoled the family of Late Satinder Hans. He assured them of all possible help, if and as needed in future. During this visit, he handed over a cheque of Rs. 50 lakhs each to the son and daughter of late Smt. Satinder Hans. Remembering her sacrifice, Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj lauded the former Senior Nursing Officer who had dedicated 37 years of her life to the service of the people who came to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital seeking treatment. While no monetary value can be ascribed to the life and service of the late Corona Warrior, Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj hoped that the family would accept the Samman Rashi as a way for the Kejriwal government to pay homage to the sacrifices made by the brave Corona Warrior.
Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj also stated that in order to serve the public amidst the Corona pandemic, doctors, nurses, and employees provided 24-hour services for the treatment of patients, staying away from their families for long durations and putting themselves in the face of danger everyday. Many Corona warriors had put their lives at stake while serving humanity and society. The Kejriwal government continues to salute their hard work and their spirit to fight the war against the Covid pandemic. Their willingness to serve others is awe-inspiring. Concluding his visit, Shri Saurabh Bhardwaj prayed to God that the soul of the dearly departed Smt. Satinder Hans would rest in peace. He reiterated that the Kejriwal government has given financial assistance of Rs 1 crore each to the families of several Corona warriors of Delhi who lost their lives serving during the Corona period, and will always stand by them for any and all possible help.
