The telecom department has urged the health ministry to 'favourably' consider the industry's request to provide COVID-19 vaccine to frontline telecom workers on a priority basis. It endorses the request of the Cellular Operators' Association of India (COAI) in this regard.
'There is no doubt that the telecom field force continues to work relentlessly to ensure uninterrupted data and voice services across the country and that in this endeavour the risk exposure for COVID-19 is high,' Telecom Secretary Anshu Prakash had said.
