    Good idea and this is what you call thinking outside the box . Since not every health worker has vehicles of their own please also provide them with free transport facilities. Let the Leading leasing companies who are making billions in profits come up and offer the cost of their transportation.

    My opinion all health workers including minor staff in hospitals and PHI deserve some sort of incentives like this but giving only 1000 selectively people with or without political interference is unfair.
