FREE aid for the pandemic stricken
The existing network of ambulance services in Lucknow is finding it increasingly difficult to drive through the steep rise of COVID infection and the patient's demands. As a result, auto-rickshaws have been inducted as a part of the medical ferry system to ensure that the COVID distressed are able to reach hospitals in time for their treatment. Besides direct transfer to treatment units, the auto ambulance will also be equipped with oxygen support for the benefit of critical cases or emergencies.
In the first segment of this novel initiative, the free of cost auto-rickshaw ambulance has been made available at Alambagh, Aliganj, Gomti Nagar, Mahanagar and Vrindavan Raebareli Road. They will run across the city at zero fares, from these 5 locations.
While speaking to Knocksense, Pankaj Dixit, the President of Auto Union informed that this aid has been devised for those COVID patients who are unable to arrange for an ambulance due to the high demand. 'This shortage of services creates several problems for these patients. We have started the assistance in an attempt to reach out to them", Pankaj Dixit informed.
