With cases rising exponentially in Delhi, a unique system has paved the way for better service. To aid in the fight against coronavirus, patients with mild symptoms needing oxygen support can now contact auto-ambulances to reach hospitals. Authorities in Delhi have transformed some of the city’s three-wheeled auto-rickshaws into makeshift ambulances.
The free auto ambulance service in Delhi for coronavirus patients has been launched by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Sanjay Singh in association with TYCIA Foundation. They are well-equipped with oxygen cylinders, sanitizers, and the drivers will wear PPE kits.
Speaking on the innovative idea, MP Sanjay Singh said more such autos would be added, which will be pressed into service from May 6. Services can be booked in Delhi through these two contact numbers: 9818430043 and 011-41236614.
These auto-ambulances have been started to ensure that patients with mild symptoms and oxygen levels between 85 to 90 can reach nearby hospitals in time, an AAP MP said.
