This will honour the solemn sacrifice of all COVID warriors who served with selfless dedication for the cause of duty and humanity,” a statement from the ministry quoting the Health Minister said.

“The Central pool MBBS seats may be allocated for selection and nominations of candidates from amongst the wards of COVID warriors, who have lost life due to the coronavirus, or died accidentally on account of COVID-related duty,” the statement added.
