An Auto Driver Awarded for Ferrying COVID Patient in Manipur

Manipur CM awards an Auto Driver for ferrying Covid-19 Survivor from Hospital to Home to 100 Km Away. Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh Thursday awarded a woman auto driver for ferrying a person who had recovered from COVID-19 in a hospital here to Kamjong district, over 100 km away.

The ambulance service of the state-run Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences in Imphal, where the woman patient was being treated, had refused to take her home as she hailed from another district but the brave auto driver ferried the patient to home.  A documentary film based on her life entitled ‘Auto Driver’ had won many accolades including best social issue film in the non-feature category at the 63rd National Film Awards in 2015 and Best Short Documentary in the Audience Choice category at the 2017 Women’s Voices Now Film Festival.
