Guwahati: A memorial for COVID-19 victims, described as the first such tribute in the country who succumbed to the infectious disease was inaugurated in Telangana.

The memorial was installed at Rajannapet village in Rajanna-Sircilla district on Thursday by Project Madad, a voluntary group of Indian and Indian diaspora doctors and professionals.

A recognition ceremony was held for rural healthcare workers who went beyond the call of duty to ensure 100 per cent vaccination in the village and helped make Rajannapet “the country’s first village to achieve COVID-resilience on 31 July this year,” the statement said.

Over a 10-week period in June-July 2021, in coordination with the district health team, Project Madad devised a series of public health interventions that were carried out in Rajannapet village by the village panchayat and local healthcare workers.
