New Delhi, Jun 16 (PTI) Drug firm Mankind Pharma on Tuesday said it will donate a total of Rs 5 crore to the families of policemen who die fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company will donate Rs 3 lakh to each family of such warriors, Mankind Pharma said in a statement.

The company has also donated ventilators, personal protective equipment (PPE) and medicines to the states, it added.
