While the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted training in most educational institutes in the world, the IMA implemented an effective COVID action plan integrating all preventive guidelines outlined by the Ministry of Health, Army Headquarter and Army Training Command. It was however ensured that there was no dilution in training standards of the GCs even as all precautions were taken and a healthy routine evolved for them.’’
