Kolkata: In a unique initiative, the West Bengal government has set up a 'COVID warrior club' in Murshidabad district, comprising people who have recovered from the disease and willing to aid the administration and health workers in containing the pandemic.
At present, 60 people who had recovered from the disease, have been enrolled as members of the club, set up at Behrampore in Murshidabad district, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Monday.
The CM insisted that her government will set up similar clubs in every district of Bengal.
"We have no problem if flights come to Bengal from other states, barring from those places which have registered the maximum number of COVID-19 cases.
We, however, request the Centre to limit the number of flights from other states, and allow these to land in Bengal just once every week.
