In the Indian union territory of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), the Baramulla district police distributed covid-19 preventive kits under its ‘Civic Action Program’ among one hundred below poverty line (BPL) families under the jurisdiction of sub-division Uri.
The kits contained face shield, N-95 mask, triple layer mask, oximeter, digital thermometer, sanitiser bottle, hand gloves and Dettol soap.
