The AYUSH ministry has also started promoting a pledge for safety during the pandemic among the government employees, grassroot organizations, subordinate offices and the general public.
With its 750 Ayush Medical Colleges network, the ministry is expexting the students of these collages to play important role in curbing the spread of the pandemic. All these colleges’ heads, besides over 2000 peopls have already taken pledge about disseminating information on the right behaviour during the pandemic among the public.
