Twin brothers and 2nd Year Engineering students of Chandigarh University, Sukhpreet Singh and Sagarpreet Singh have found a new role for themselves these days working as COVID-19 Warriors under 40's Fighters Welfare Club by screening the commuters and sanitizing their vehicles. With the support of Chandigarh Administration, Chandigarh Police and Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh, the CU students under the guidance of their father Darshan Preet Singh and other residents of Sector 40 Chandigarh are working on the initiative to seal off their sector entry points so as to contain the pandemic. DP Singh working as inspector in the Enforcement Wing of Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh himself is discharging his duties as a COVID-19 Warrior heading the quarantine team of UT Administration and is responsible to search for COVID-19 suspected cases and then to home quarantine them. Working under the 40’s Fighter Welfare Club, the CU students along with other volunteers have set-up camp on the entrance of Sector 40 where they screen every commuter entering their sector using thermal thermometers, sanitize their vehicles, provide them gloves and face masks. The camp was inaugurated by Advisor to UT Administration, Manoj Kumar Parida along with MC Councillor for Sector 40 and former Deputy Mayor, Gurbax Rawat and recently Chandigarh administrator VP Singh Badnore has asked the local authorities to replicate the model in other sectors of Chandigarh which are in the containment zone.“We got inspired from our father who himself is on COVID-19 duty protecting the lives of Residents of Chandigarh” said Sukhpreet Singh. There was no reported case of infection in our sector and we decided to formulate a plan to seal the entry points of Sector-40 to monitor and screen the daily commuters so that no infection can spread to the residents of our sector, he added.“On a daily basis we screen about 1000 commuters at the two entry points of Sector-40 and if we notice any person with high temperature, we immediately refer him or her to the Doctor at our camp who further carries out the clinical investigation” said Sagarpreet Singh. Dr. Brajesh Joshi a private medical practitioner is working as a volunteer at the camp to examine any suspected case. “Chandigarh University is doing exemplary community service by providing food to the needy, stray animals, distributing sanitizers to the hospitals & police and setting up isolation facility for COVID-19 patients and as students of CU, we feel proud of our university” added Sagarpreet. “As the head of the UT Administration quarantine team, I have to be on duty day & night continuously for 4 days and during my absence both my sons spearhead the campaign and I join them on my off days” said DP Singh. “Chandigarh University salutes the community service being done by both our students Sukhpreet and Sagarpreet and we are really proud of their work of coming forward to protect other specially at the time of crisis” said Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University
