Covid-19 pandemic has been a global menace for last 10 months. India has not been untouched. In Tripura, we have faced different waves of Covid-19 infection. I am happy to say that as BSF personnel, we have fought shoulder to shoulder with State Health Care System and Administrative Machinery in containing the spread and treating our patients with success.
As on date 1532 Covid positive cases have been reported amongst members of BSF of Tripura Frontier out of which 826 patients have been treated in Composite Hospital and rest in other Covid Care Centres. Only one (01) person amongst them have succumbed to the disease at G B Pant Hospital, Agartala.

This time, once again, BSF is going to be on the forefront of this national vaccination programme against Covid – 19.
Today about 100 Health Care Works of this location will be vaccinated in 1st dose of Covid-19 vaccine. We are very enthusiastic about it, with no fear or apprehension in mind.
I am thankful to the State Health Authorities and in particular, the Director, National Health Mission (NHM) of Tripura for this program.
I take this opportunity to thank all our Health Care Workers who were “SILENT SAMARITANS” for their selfless service in our fight against Covid-19.
