Covid-19 heroes: Walton honours 35 frontline healthcare workers

Local electronics giant Walton has honoured the country’s frontline healthcare workers for their exceptional medical services amid Covid-19 to protect people while putting their own lives at stake.

To recognise such sacrifices, Walton’s washing machine department arranged the event “Health Care Heroes” in the capital on Friday.

The company honoured 30 physicians and five nurses of different medical colleges, hospitals and institutions with a crest and an advanced Walton washing machine.

Also, Walton gave Tk1 lakh each to the families of two physicians who died while treating Covid-19 patients.

Walton Hi-Tech Industries Director SM Mahbubul Alam said, “The country’s physicians, nurses and healthcare workers carried out their regular medical services to control deadliest Covid-19 pandemic, while risking their own lives. I think that this sacrifice should be recognised.”

Prominent educationalist Syed Anwar Husain thanked the initiative of honouring the country’s physicians, nurses and healthcare workers, and hoped that other businesses would also follow suit.
