After facing flak, the Centre on Tuesday extended the Rs 50 lakh insurance scheme for healthcare workers who die on Covid-19 duty by one year.

'During the coronavirus pandemic, Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package (PMGKP) has provided a safety net to the dependents of Corona Warriors who lost their lives to Covid-19. I am glad to announce that this scheme has now been extended for a period of one year with effect from today,' Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said.
