Inspector general of police Benazir Ahmed has given four oxygen concentrators to Dhaka Reporters Unity, the largest organisation of professional reporters.
The police chief handed over the oxygen concentrators to DRU president Rafiqul Islam Azad any general secretary Reaz Chowdhury from his office at Police Headquarters Tuesday evening.
The arrangement of oxygen concentrators is a new addition to DRU measures to protect the health of its members and families in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
If a DRU member or family member is infected by the coronavirus and suffers from shortness of breath, they will be able to immediately take the services of these oxygen concentrators.
Each remote-controlled oxygen concentrator is able to automatically generate 8 liters of oxygen at a time.
The DRU will soon let its all members know as to how they will be able to take the services of the oxygen concentrators.
The DRU president and general secretary expressed their thanks and gratitude to the IGP to stand beside the working reporters during the corona outbreak.
Higher police officials were present during handing over the electronic devices to DRU.
