Jain hands over Covid relief material to health department to combat virus surge

Taking cognizance of the rising number of cases in the National Capital Region, BSES Yamuna Power Limited donated 50 hand sanitiser machines and three ambulances to the health department as part of Covid relief material.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Monday handed over Covid-19 relief material to the health department to enable them to combat the surge in a better way. Further, the Minister inaugurated two hand sanitiser machines at the Delhi Secretariat and flagged off the ambulances to Delhi’s GTB, GB PANT and LBS hospitals.

Various dignitaries, including CEO, BSES Yamuna Power Limited and teams from GB Pant, GTB and LBS hospitals graced the event with their presence.

Speaking at the occasion, Jain said: “I am thankful to BSES for gifting three ambulances to GTB, GB Pant and LBS hospitals. Along with this, they have donated 50 high quality hand sanitiser and temperature monitors to Mohalla Clinics. The ambulances are fully equipped and the citizens of Delhi will surely benefit from them.”

The Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance service for serious patients will be free of cost and technologically equipped. The benefit of this ambulance service will be given to patients suffering from heart attacks, respiratory problems, head injuries, fire injuries as well as newborns in severe cases of childbirth. With the help of this ambulance service, victims of road accidents amongst others, too, will be taken to the hospitals in an emergency.
