The Delhi government will accord the 'Corona Warrior' status to a National Health Mission (NHM) doctor who succumbed to COVID-19, and grant his family Rs 1 crore compensation, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said on 22 July.

Dr Javed Ali, 42, had contracted the infection in the line of duty on June 24. He was hospitalised for treatment over the next three weeks. Ten days before his death, he was put on ventilator support. He died on 20 July morning at the AIIMS Trauma centre.

His wife had been appealing to authorities to provide help to the family.

"Dr Javed Ali working as a doctor with Delhi Govt NRHM, had succumbed to Covid. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced that he will be given Corona Warrior status. Delhi govt will gives 1 cr compensation to the family," Jain tweeted.

"I am proud of my husband. He kept working till the end and he is a martyr. He did not take even one day off since March. He worked even on Eid," Dr Heena Kausar, wife of DR Javed Ali tweeted.
