‘Farz Manukhta Da’ Covid Help Centre proving boon for patients

The second wave of corona pandemic has caught in its spate Punjab too along with the other States leading to thousands people facing huge difficulties in procuring ventilator beds, corona kits and medicines for their near and dear ones. The situation in the country resembles that of emergency due to sudden spurt in the patient count. This upsurge has posed challenges in ensuring quality treatment for critically ill patients because every patient wants positive redressal of queries on one call without any hassles.

The helpline also ensures that the volunteers deliver food to the families of Covid patients.
