Odisha fire services, NDRF personnel infected with Coronavirus during restoration work in WB, test negative now

At least 192 Odisha fire services and 83 National Disaster Response Force ( NDRF) personnel, who had tested positive for COVID-19 following their return from post-Amphan restoration work in West Bengal, have now recovered. Most of them have already resumed duty and are ready to fight back the Coronavirus all over again.

AIR Correspondent reports, after  having tested positive for COVID-19, some of  NDRF personnel feared that friends and colleagues might maintain distance from them. But when they join their duties they find the workplace the same as it was before. They find their workplace very comfortable. 

Even after being tested positive for COVID-19 nothing could dampen their spirit. The NDRF personnel who had tested positive had always kept their moral and mental strength very high.

 The government had on May 24th sent a team of firemen, NDRF, and ODRAF to West Bengal to carry out post-cyclone restoration work. All of them returned on 5th June. After that, they were kept in institutional quarantine.
