The fine print of the Rs.50 lakhs health cover is that it is only meant to cover the life of these health workers so that in the event of death their families are adequately compensated. However, if the health workers get injured or fall sick or contract the affliction, then there is no compensation. This has result in a lot of disappointment for the healthcare workers where the risk of contracting is the real risk at this point of time. However, a clarity is awaited from the government.
